Keep Brevard Beautiful Spends Summer Cleaning Up

KBB Summer Cleanup Series 2019

Keep Brevard Beautiful hosts fifth annual Summer Cleanup Series. 

Keep Brevard Beautiful (KBB), along with partner Florida Today, hosted four cleanup events -- the fifth annual Summer Cleanup Series -- spanning weekend days in June and July. The cleanups were held at the following locations: Kiwanis Island Park on Merritt Island; Parrish Park in TitusvillePaddling Paradise in Palm Bay; and Kelly Park East in Merritt Island

More than 100 people participated in the first event; over 140 volunteers at the second; more than 160 at the third; and nearly 150 at the fourth and final cleanup. After each cleanup, volunteers were invited to attend post-event parties featuring food, drinks, kayaking and paddle-boarding. In addition, volunteers who attend all four events were entered to win a kayak or a four-pack of Disney tickets.

In total, more than 3,000 pounds of litter and debris were removed from the local environment during the cleanup series, including a broken paddle boat and a 1960's era glass soft drink bottle, which was found fully intact.
