At Keep Davidson County Beautiful, it’s our mission to inspire and educate people to take action every day to improve and beautify their community environment. We envision a county where every community is a clean, green, beautiful place to live.

Through a variety of county wide programs and initiatives with our local governments and partner organizations, our goal is to engage volunteers in our effort to End Littering, Improve Recycling, and Beautify Davidson County’s Communities.

Litter is more than just a blight on our landscape. Litter is costly to clean up, impacts our quality of life and economic development, and eventually ends up in our waterways and oceans. Among our many initiatives, the Keep Davidson County Beautiful Litter Index and Community Appearance Index are step-by-step methods of assessing current litter conditions and other indicators which is used in thousands of communities and by municipalities nationwide. Today, we are as committed as ever to providing people with the resources to help prevent litter with the ultimate goal of helping to end littering in Davidson County.

To report litter and illegal dumping in Davidson County, you can access the Davidson County Government website’s Citizen Request on Litter. This tool allows you report a problem directly to the authorities responsible for addressing the concern by filling out the online form provide here.
