We awarded Keep James City County Beautiful (KJCCB) a $1,000 30 in Thirty grant for their Recycling project. For the last two years, KJCCB has been working on recycling efforts at The Warhill Sports complex. Most of the trash thrown away there is bottles and cans, making it the perfect place for a recycling initiative. Grant funds will be used to educate the public about the importance of utilizing the recycling containers, including new signs to make it easy for everyone to make the right choice.
Government, non-profit, civic, and service organizations in Virginia were invited to apply for 30 in Thirty grants for $500 to $2,000 describing how they plan to address Litter Prevention, Recycling, Cigarette Litter Prevention, or Beautification in their communities. Since 2011, Keep Virginia Beautiful has provided over $145,000 to 195 projects throughout the Commonwealth. This year, we partnered with Altria, Keep America Beautiful, and Deep Run Dance Marathon to make the program possible.
