Volunteer Opportunities

Cigarette Litter Prevention

KNHB recycles cigarette litter from all over New Hanover County from the ILM International Airport to your local bar. With 185+ canisters needing to be collected each week this is a huge job for our team. We are always looking for new volunteers to help us maintain this program. If you are interested in participating please fill out a contact form here

In addition to our Second Saturday Clean-Ups, Keep New Hanover Beautiful also participates in several Clean-Up events throughout the year such as the Great American Clean-Up, the International Coastal Clean-Up and the Azalea Sweep.
