Keep Kingsport Beautiful, with the support of the City of Kingsport Public Works Department, will hold a neighborhood cleanup in the Lynn Garden community on Saturday, October 24 from 9am to 11am. Volunteers are asked to meet at the Lynn Garden Community Center.

Volunteers are needed to pick up trash, remove debris and help with beautification efforts.  Civic, school and church organizations, Scout troops, businesses, families and individuals are encouraged to be part of this event. This is a great opportunity for students who are looking for community service hours for honors programs and scholarship requirements, particularly Tennessee Promise and TN/VA Scholars students. The Lynn Garden cleanup is sponsored by Republic Services.

Neighborhood groups/associations, churches, schools and businesses are encouraged to organize a cleanup event in their neighborhood and contact KKB to receive free supplies.  Trash bags and gloves will be provided to volunteers.

Keep Kingsport Beautiful is a partnership of the City of Kingsport and the Kingsport Chamber.  An affiliate of Keep America Beautiful and Keep Tennessee Beautiful, Keep Kingsport Beautiful has won more than 70 national, state and environmental awards. Its mission is to involve the community in responsible solutions for a clean and beautiful environment.
