Litter Cleanups

Let’s face it litter is ugly, it pollutes our waterways, it’s expensive for our cities, towns, and communities to remove. Keep Gastonia Beautiful provides a simple way for anyone to make a difference in their own neighborhood and provide the inspiration for others to do the same.  Help Keep Gastonia Beautiful by joining us for a local cleanup.  Grab a friend or two and get out and pick up trash.

Each year, Keep Gastonia Beautiful joins the Catawba Riverkeepers for their Riversweep, the largest single-day clean-up initiative in the Southeast!. The Riversweep is a collective effort of dozens of non-profit, governmental, and for-profit organizations from 26 counties across North and South Carolina.  The Catawba Riversweep is an example of the power of collaboration and cooperation and KGB is proud to be a Site Host each year!  We have also volunteered our time to clean out their "litter gitter" located along Duhart Creek off of Lowell Bethesda Road.  This is a very meaninful partnership for both Keep Gastonia Beautiful and the Catawba Riverkeepers.

This unique community engagement event is organized and led by the Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit organization based in Charlotte, NC that was founded in 1997 and is dedicated to the preservation and protection of the waters of the Catawba-Wateree River for those who enjoy and depend on her.
