About:

This site has been filled for the 2017-2018 Recruitment Cycle.

Keep Sevier Beautiful is a multi-award winning non-profit that brings people together to protect the beauty of our County in turn stimulating economic growth, building vibrant communities and protecting the gateway to the Smoky Mountains.

We have a simple concept. Teach people how to care for their environment and they will. Reach kids at a young age and instill good habits that will continue throughout their lifetime. We believe in changing behaviors to change our environment. As an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful & Keep TN Beautiful, we focus on three areas: litter prevention, waste reduction/recycling and greening through education and engaging our community.

It is our goal to enhance and protect the beauty of Sevier County and improve the quality of life of our residents through community based projects. Through our volunteers, we engage the community in projects like County wide litter pick ups, recycling collection events, tree plantings, community gardens, household hazardous waste collection, anti-litter and recycling education, playground enhancement and beautification projects.
