Norristown Becomes Newest Keep America Beautiful Affiliate in PA


 

On July 12, 2018 Keep Norristown Beautiful became the 14th Keep America Beautiful affiliate in Pennsylvania. The certification of Norristown's affiliation marked the culmination of a public-private-civic partnership process that began in late 2017.

Keep Norristown Beautiful is a coalition dedicated to empowering people to make a difference in Norristown through conservation, education, and beautification efforts. The organization is a program of the Municipality of Norristown, completely funded through a recycling rewards program, and consists of an Executive Director to oversee operations and an advisory board representing Norristown’s Municipal Council, the Norristown Chamber of Commerce, the John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove, and other community leaders. The group’s overall strategic plan for the next three years includes litter control and education, recycling, combating illegal dumping, and community wide cleanup programs. Brandon Ford, Executive Director of Keep Norristown Beautiful, can be reached at knb@norristown.org.
