Library Litter Pick-up Kits
The Library Litter Pick-up Kit program started as a pilot due to COVID-19 since our organization was unable to host large scale cleanups, and initially ran through August 2020. In partnership with the Thomasville Library System, KTCB teamed up to provide Litter Pick-up Kits available for check-out by anyone with a library card. The kits contain everything you would need for a DIY cleanup including bag holders, litter grippers, bags, safety vests and disposable gloves. During the programs first two months 13 kits were used by 22 people who collected over 39 bags of litter. Due to its success, it is now an ongoing program to allow residents of our county to make a difference in their neighborhoods or their favorite outdoor spots.
