Keep Queensland Beautiful

Our programs motivate people to enhance the quality of their local environment through personal initiative and community action.

Keep Queensland Beautiful is a not-for-profit (apolitical) volunteer driven environmental organisation. 

We receive no recurrent Government funding - our programs are financed through donations and corporate sponsorships. Without our members, donors and volunteers, Keep Queensland Beautiful would be unable to continue educating the community at large to reuse - reduce - recycle and simply to do the right thing; use a bin.

Through interaction with local governments, businesses, schools, community groups and committed individuals; Keep Queensland Beautiful engages a state-wide network of grassroots volunteers who work towards achieving a cleaner, litter-free Queensland.

Our iconic programs



is a safe and enjoyable litter cleanup and prevention program that gives local communities the opportunity to contribute to a healthier local environment.

Adopt-a-Spot mobilises an army of community-focused organisations and individuals, who keep their adopted road, park, beach or waterway clean and litter-free.

With over 174,000kms of State and local government maintained roads alone in Queensland, litter removal is a major exercise which is costly to the community.
