Growing from a collaboration with student volunteers from the University of South Carolina, Keep the Midlands Beautiful is proud to offer KMB-led cleanups on Saturday mornings known as "Spotless Service Saturdays."
Cleanup locations change for each event, allowing us to address areas with high litter accumulation within Lexington and Richland counties as well as the City of Columbia. KMB provides all supplies including trash bags, litter grabbers, safety vests, and gloves. KMB advertises the events and KMB staff are onsite to supervise and participate. Any and all residents from Lexington and Richland counties are encouraged to participate. Groups are welcome. Cleanups take place from 9 a.m. to 12 noon.
