Mission Statement

Keep Longview Beautiful will educate and engage our community to take responsibility for improving their environment through litter prevention, beautification and waste reduction.

Litter Prevention

Litter attracts litter and is a serious environmental issue. Individuals are more likely to litter in a dirty area. By contrast, a clean community discourages littering and greatly improves overall quality of life. Changing a common behavior, like littering, starts with you. Each person must accept responsibility for their actions and influence the acts of others at home, at school, in your place of business, and in the community at large.

Keep Longview Beautiful continues to monitor roadside trash in Longview with the annual Community Appearance Index. Designed by Keep America Beautiful, this tool visually assesses the overall appearance of a community through indicators such as litter, illegal signs, graffiti, abandoned vehicles and outside storage. A team of community, business and government representatives conducts the analysis using a scoring system ranging from 1-4 with ‘1’ being the best and ‘4’ being the worst.



Is beauty a characteristic? Is it perceptual for you? Have you had a beautiful experience? Perhaps you admire some one or something and to you, that is beauty. Whatever your eye beholds as beauty we hope you share your harmony and balance within Longview.
