Peggy Denby has been Executive Director of Keep Atlanta Beautiful for 8 years. She is also an artist and involved with neighborhood safety. Before she became ED, KAtlB was inactive for a number of years. She and others successfully reactivated it and started over. The mission is to empower neighborhoods to be cleaner and greener.
KAtlB works primarily in the areas of litter and graffiti abatement, recycling, and beautification. KAtlB raises funds to purchase trashcans that are placed in needed areas around the city and we raise funds to purchase graffiti abatement supplies to hand out to neighborhoods. We hold two recycling events each month - in Buckhead and Old Fourth Ward. We are providing stump grinding and tree trimming services for residents who are willing to pay to remove stumps or trim trees on public property.
It's good to talk.
