KLB 50th Anniversary

Help us celebrate our 50 year anniversary!

We are funded only through private donations.  
That money goes to fund cleanup supplies (safety vests, bags, gloves, pickup sticks), as well as to fund canoe rentals and hazardous waste dump fees for our two annual water cleanup events. In addition to program fees, we invest money on educational programs administered in our county schools and more.

Since 1972, Keep Loudoun Beautiful (KLB) has served Loudoun County through litter removal, education, environmental advocacy, and beautification efforts. Our organization was born out of citizens’ frustrations for the lack of accountability our local government displayed toward littered streets and parks. These tensions led to the KLB founding members depositing litter collected onto the floor at a Board of Supervisors meeting.  Since that impactful day 50 years ago, over ten thousand citizen volunteers have taken to the streets to clean our community with the help of Keep Loudoun Beautiful. KLB monitors illegal dumping, plants trees with other community associations, established a KLB park out of a generous donation from the County, sponsors artwork from the county’s youth for prizes and public display in the circuit court, keeps rivers and streams clean through canoe and watershed cleanups, all with the aid of our diverse volunteer groups and annual outreach programs within the Loudoun community.

Even with all these accomplishments, litter persists as a significant issue in the county. Within the last 50 years, many farms have been replaced by subdivisions, and the population has grown from under 40,000 to well over 400,000.  Growth and increased population density has resulted in more trash being generated and ultimately ending up in the gutter, the storm drain, and Loudoun waterways.

Despite this reality, we continue to look forward to the next 50 years with optimism.  KLB has a new generation of student leaders helping to update our programs.  In 2021, we launched our first video contest for high school aged students, replacing our 18 years of elementary school poster and essay contests.  With new communities in the county, we have new areas and new area leaders joining KLB to help continue and grow our efforts.  We invite you to get involved by joining a committee, becoming an area leader for your neighborhood, donating to our efforts, and always choosing to live sustainably.  With your help and commitment to reduce, reuse, and recycle, we know we can Keep Loudoun Beautiful for the next 50 years and beyond.
