Keep Montgomery County Clean and Green

The Keep Montgomery County Clean and Green (KMCCG) formerly known as Keep Montgomery County Beautiful (KMCB) program was started in 1983. It encompasses a series of initiatives designed to maintain the County's high quality environment, especially in connection with the Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT).

The KMCCG Task Force was a group of concerned residents who, during the mid 1980's, joined with the County government to develop beautification projects and anti-litter and recycling programs.   The Task Force functions were to educate and change citizen attitudes about littering; support cleanup and beautification projects; encourage citizens and businesses to extensively recycle; and improve awareness about graffiti in the community.

In past years the Task Force advised MCDOT on various beautification programs included the Beautification Grant, Storm Drain Marking program,  Adopt A Road (AAR) volunteer program, and creation of the  Adopt A Spot program.  Previous topics of discussion at the these meetings have included learning about  Maryland's Champion Tree program and other environmental issues; Department of Environmental Protection  Rainscape Program; FY17 budget planning, education and eradication activities of the   Graffiti Abatement Partners, Inc. (GRAB);   Regional Anti-Litter Campaign in addition to enforcing anti-litter laws and signage;  MC Litter Control legislation; creation of a Merchants Keeping Montgomery County Beautiful initiative;   Certified Green Business program; the  Alice Ferguson Foundation's Potomac Watershed Cleanup and other environmental issues to support the  Potomac River Watershed Treaty; the  Public School System’s Environmental Literacy and  Maryland's Green Schools programstree preservationChampion Tree program; expansion of County’s plastics  recycling programillegal signs enforcement and lawsSchool Energy Recycling Team program; collaboration on the Monthly AAR Communication eNewsletters; and organized the Beautification Awards Ceremony for the Landscape and Amateur Photography competitions.
