Keeping America Beautiful Together
As spring arrives, thousands of organizations and nearly 4 million volunteers will rally together for the Great American Cleanup® to help improve more than 16,000 communities across the nation. The annual event, organized by national nonprofit Keep America Beautiful, includes restoring parks, removing graffiti, planting trees, community gardening, recycling programs and much more.
As a proud sponsor and longtime supporter, Troy-Bilt plays a huge role in the success of the Great American Cleanup. Over the past 14 years, Troy-Bilt has provided direct donations to participating communities, ranging from leaf blowers to mowers and tillers to assist volunteers.
The results speak for themselves. In past years, the Great American Cleanup has removed 177 million pounds of litter and debris from public spaces, beautified more than 110,000 miles of roadways and 3,800 miles of trails, and improved 12,000+ acres of wetlands. Recycling efforts diverted hundreds of millions of pounds of materials from landfills, and 166,000 new trees were planted. Keep America Beautiful hopes to achieve even bigger results in 2013.
Troy-Bilt believes that each of us holds an obligation to preserve and protect the environment around us. If we all lend a hand, together we can help keep America beautiful.
