Lawrenceville, Ga. – March 5, 2020 – After 10 months of voting, the results are in! Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful has been recognized among the Best Charitable Organizations in Gwinnett County. Created by Guide to Gwinnett, the Best of Gwinnett poll spans a wide variety of industries – from Auto Dealers to Wedding Venues and everything in between. Best of Gwinnett winners and nominees are chosen by a combination of readers’ votes and editors’ input. The process begins with a nomination on the Best of Gwinnett website. After tens of thousands of votes have been received and tallied, the voting culminates with the publishing of the annual Best of Gwinnett issue. Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful is honored to be named among the Best of Gwinnett – the highest designation given to the businesses with the most votes in their category.

“This win is an AWESOME way to kick-off the 40th anniversary of Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful,” said Schelly Marlatt, Executive Director for Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful. “It’s particularly meaningful knowing that we were not only nominated by the public but also that we received votes from many of the citizens we serve that led to this win. It’s so rewarding to know that what we’re doing is being recognized – not just by Best of Gwinnett, but by our neighbors in this community that we love so much. Recognitions like this serve to grow our brand among those who may not be familiar with Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful and our role of educating and motivating Gwinnett County citizens to act on behalf of our environment – whether adopting a road to keep clean or participating in a recycling event. It’s more than a tagline for us, we really do take pride in our ability to connect people and resources for a more sustainable Gwinnett.”
