Keep Sevier Beautiful is a multi-award winning non-profit that brings people together to protect the beauty of our County and in turn stimulating economic growth, building vibrant communities and protecting the gateway to the Smoky Mountains.

It is the goal of KSB to enhance and protect the beauty of Sevier County and improve the quality of life of area residents through community based projects. Through  volunteers, KSB engages the community in projects like County wide litter pick ups, recycling collection events, tree plantings, community gardens, household hazardous waste collection, anti-litter and recycling education, playground enhancement and beautification projects.

The KSB concept is simple. Teach people how to care for their environment and they will. Reach kids at a young age and instill good habits that will continue throughout their lifetime. KSB believes in changing behaviors to change the environment. As an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful & Keep TN Beautiful, KSB focuses on three areas: litter prevention, waste reduction/recycling and greening through education and engaging our community.
