BCCD is Keep Bucks Beautiful
Did you know that the BCCD is the local affiliate of the state-wide organization Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful?
Keep Bucks Beautiful was formed 4 years ago to help fulfill the mission of Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful (KPB) in Bucks County. KPB works to eliminate illegal dumping and littering in Pennsylvania. A survey of the County was completed in 2011 identifying over 100 illegal dumpsites in Bucks County. Since then, Keep Bucks Beautiful along with partner groups such as the Greenbelt Alliance Of Levittown (GOAL) have worked to clean those sites up and protect them from future dumping.
We welcome you to join us in our effort to beautify Bucks County! The Illegal Dump Survey for Bucks and other counties can be viewed at www.keeppabeautiful.org. There you will also find great information about other programs and opportunities to protect our environment. Start planning now to participate in the Great American Cleanup this coming spring! You can register an event, and receive free supplies!
There are always opportunities to contribute. We hope you join in the effort!
