CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

Keep Chatham Beautiful, the latest affiliate in the Keep America Beautiful Foundation, launched Tuesday. The non-profit volunteer group focuses on litter prevention, waste reduction, recycling, beautification, community improvement and education. They hope the efforts make people proud to be part of Chatham County.

"We want the whole county and all the municipalities to enjoy that sense of pride and clean beauty that comes with a nice park green space area, including the different junctions that are along roadways and pedestrian paths. What people see is something they can truly take pride in," said Rick Hamilton, Keep Chatham Beautiful president.

The affiliate has been in the works for about a year.
