Keep Waco Beautiful was started in 1979 as the Beautification Committee of Waco. The committee changed its name in the 1980's to Keep Waco Beautiful.  What once started as a small committee dedicated to beautifying the community is now a non-profit organization with over 13,000 volunteers and a plethora of activities yearly.

Our mission is to help make Waco a cleaner, healthier, safer and more beautiful place to live, work and play. We believe that concentrated cleanup, beautification and anti-litter programs develop a feeling of community pride among our citizens.

We are dedicated to teaching people to take responsibility for enhancing their community environment through action, education, and involvement. Keep Waco Beautiful is an affiliate of Keep Texas Beautiful and Keep America Beautiful.

Keep Waco Beautiful is an award winning program that has won the prestigious Governor's Award six times, bringing almost $1 million into the community that was used in beautification efforts, and also second place in the national Keep America Beautiful award.

Keep Waco Beautiful currently has over 400 members and over 13,000 volunteers.
