Keep Gilmer Beautiful

You may be from here or like many of us, you came to the beautiful Georgia Mountains on vacation to hike and camp or maybe to just ride the backroads and travel the waterways. Some of us stayed because of the people we met but mainly because of the clean and healthy environment of Gilmer County. If you love where you live you will want to help improve your living space.

Keep Gilmer Beautiful is an Advisory Committee appointed by the County Board of Commissioners.

The mission of KGB is to work with Gilmer County government and county citizens to promote a clean and healthy environment in which to work, live and enjoy. The KGB program is comprised of the Advisory Committee and other concerned citizens whose purpose is to educate and inspire our citizens to take ownership of the environment and ensure that Gilmer County stays clean and beautiful for future generations. We actively seek community involvement from all ages to help prevent litter, encourage recycling and to reduce waste.
