Keep Norfolk Beautiful
Keep Norfolk Beautiful works to lead our community to reduce litter, recycle right, and beautify Norfolk through education and volunteerism. These efforts help support clean, safe, and resilient neighborhoods.
Appointments are required for supply pick-ups, drop-offs, and all programming needs. Please call ahead (757) 441-1347 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org at least 3 days prior to your event.
New Volunteer Engagement Platform
Keep Norfolk Beautiful’s (KNB) Adopt-A-Spot (AAS) Hub site is our newest volunteer engagement platform! Using the tools of ESRI ArcGIS Online, KNB’s Hub is an online gathering place enabling volunteers to track cleanup hours, view a map of Adopt-A-Spot locations, report activities, and access program documents.
The real power of this tool, however, is the Hub’s ability to visualize volunteers’ work in real-time, share stories of our efforts, and highlight programs and people that will inspire others to keep Norfolk beautiful.
