KAB’s mission is to engage citizens in taking personal responsibility for improving their community environments. KAB has established diverse, highly effective programs that instill community pride and produce tangible local benefits for years to come.

For Oakland to reap the full benefits of belonging to this national effort, it takes dedicated individuals to play a critical role in this endeavor. Board members share their time and expertise as volunteer leaders of Keep Oakland Beautiful.

The mission of Keep Oakland Beautiful is to create and sustain a beautiful, clean, green, litter-free city through education, community engagement and volunteer action.

Measurement and accountability are cornerstones of Keep America Beautiful and its affiliates. KAB’s Litter Index is an essential part of the planning and education process to address the littered conditions of cities nationwide.
