The Keep Henrico Beautiful Committee was organized in 1980 for the purpose of improving the environmental quality of Henrico County through the development of a comprehensive educational program to reduce litter and littering. The County Board of Supervisors appoints members and the committee is comprised of citizen volunteers representing the five magisterial districts within the County. The executive coordinator, who is a full-time County employee in the Department of Public Utilities, provides staff support to the Committee.
Keep Henrico Beautiful offers County residents of all ages litter prevention and recycling programs, environmental education resources and volunteer opportunities.
