What People Say
We hate to see trash along the roads, and if we don’t do something about the litter, who will?
No man is an island; everything that we do has a direct impact on others.
There is such a deep-down, good feeling of picking up trash.
With Your Help
With the help of donors like you we have removed over 28 TONS of litter from Rutherford County since 2017 and provided events like RecycleBot and Trash Bowl for children and teens of all ages to change litter culture for our next generation.

How do donations work?
Tax deductible donations help support the efforts of Keep RC Beautiful. Donations may be made anonymously, in memory or honor of someone else, or on behalf of a business. We appreciate your support!

Tax deductible online donations are available here or, if you are unable to donate electronically, you can send a check or money order to Keep RC Beautiful, PO Box 834, Rutherfordton, NC 28139. Make the check payable to "Rutherford Bound" with "KRCB" in the memo line. If you would like to direct your donation to a certain project, please make sure to include specific instructions for what the money is to be used for.
