Litter free: It’s up to YOU and ME
Keep Oconee Beautiful Association (KOBA) organizes anti-littering activities focused on education of the public and beautification of our surroundings. KOBA’s efforts directly impact the public’s knowledge of littering laws and facts, which may reduce litter in our parks, roads and waterways.
KOBA is a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to restore the beauty of Oconee County through education, awareness, cooperation and action.
Since April 1985 KOBA has been an integral part of pursuing a litter-free environment in the county through various programs: Adopt-A-Highway and Adopt-A-Spot; an elementary education program with Kobie Bear & Friends; participation in Great American Cleanup; and conducting the annual county litter survey. As a Gold Level Affiliate with Keep America Beautiful, KOBA was instrumental in the creation of a county-wide litter ordinance and now has a county environmental enforcement officer working on litter reduction and control. KOBA works closely with the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office of Litter Control to coordinate programs and events and to promote strengthening of litter laws.
