"Community Beautiful" is an outreach program through the Jackson County Cleanup Coalition (JCCC), a collaborative effort of MoDOT and Jackson County communities working together to prevent and cleanup litter within our county.
The JCCC has been formed to address the growing need for litter control across the area. This includes preventing litter from accumulating along the city and state roadways, while educating the public and changing the perception about litter.
The message is clear; it is NOT acceptable to litter.
JCCC is currently working with local community cleanup groups such as Adopt-A-Highway, Bridging The Gap, Metropolitan Community Service Program, and Adopt-A-Street to begin a yearlong campaign called "Community Beautiful" to address the litter problem and increase awareness. The kick-off begins in November.
Community Beautiful is hosting a county-wide litter collection effort during November in support of America Recycles Day on Nov. 15.
