Keep Key West Beautiful Fund

Keep Key West Beautiful is an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful. Under Keep Key West Beautiful are three volunteer groups Plogging the Keys, Key West Adopt a Spot and the Mayor’s Beautification committee.

Plogging the Keys does cleanups at different locations throughout the city of Key West every Friday morning from 8-9am year-round and special cleanups on other weekdays and weekends as requested.

Key West Adopt a Spot allows for local community involvement from residents, businesses, and community service organizations. Someone can adopt a street, a park or even the area in front of their house with a common goal of keeping the trash off the street and out of our beautiful waters surrounding Key West.

The Mayor’s Beautification Committee takes on local projects such as trash can painting, repainting of street names on concrete poles and other community projects.

Keep Key West Beautiful believes that in Key West and the Florida Keys everyone should do their part in disposing of trash, cigarette butts and toxic chemical properly year-round to protect our fragile ecosystem.

Keep Key West Beautiful with the dedication of Plogging the Keys has made a huge impact on Key West with a significant increase year over year. All cigarette butts collected and sent to Terra Cycle for recycling at no cost to the city.

Through the dedication of these volunteers Keep Key West Beautiful has earned the presidents circle award for the second year in a row. Thank you for your donation which will support future cleanup and education events year-round.
