Keep Orlando Beautiful

KOB volunteers clean a lake.

Founded in 1987, Keep Orlando Beautiful, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and certified as an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, Inc. The program is administered by the City of Orlando’s Streets and Stormwater Division of the Public Works Department.

KOB has accomplished many worthwhile projects to keep Orlando “The City Beautiful”, including several education programs, public space and event recycling bin implementation as well as numerous community cleanup and beautification events.

The Keep Orlando Beautiful organization’s advisory board meets every other month (six times a year) to discuss business related to the organization and to share ideas for programs that meet our mission.

The board consists of local government, businesses, residents and non-profits that share our same goal of enhancing the local environment. Our meetings are held the third Wednesday of every other month at 3:15 p.m. in the Streets and Drainage building on Woods Avenue.

If you are interested in joining or sitting in on a meeting, please email sean.hipps@orlando.gov.
