Keep Luna County Beautiful (KLCB), a program funded by state grants and the County of Luna, has been dedicated to working with the community of Luna County for over 11 years to make our environment healthier, safer, and a more beautiful place to live and visit. The mission statement of KLCB is to engage individuals to take greater responsibility for the improvement of their community environment. To accomplish our mission, KLCB focuses on 4 goals: education, litter prevention, beautification, and waste reduction. Education is the cornerstone of KLCB. Our primary target audience is our youth. Developing and nurturing our youth into becoming good environmental stewards will have a direct and positive impact on the future of our community. Community involvement is essential to the success of the Keep Luna County Beautiful program.

The Adopt-a-Roadway litter prevention initiative enables citizens to show their pride of residency in Luna County and reduce the amount of unsightly trash alongside the county roadways. Unkempt communities are more likely to have increased crime, decreased economic growth, and a decline in quality of life. The litter prevention efforts of the Adopt-a-Roadway program directly benefit the community through litter prevention, greater civic involvement, and are beautification.

The Four Easy Adopt-a-Roadway Steps:

1. Decide which road to adopt.

Since you will be checking it periodically, we suggest you pick a location convenient to your home, school, or business. Or, we can make suggestions of suitable roads.

2. Contact Us and Take Action.

Contact us to sign the Adopt-a-Roadway Agreement, confirming you will maintain the location for at least 12 months and have at least four cleanups during that time. Free garbage bags, trash grabbers, gloves, and vests will be provided for your cleanup days.

3. Contact us for Post-Cleanup Pickup.

Keep Luna County Beautiful will arrange for the removal of the filled garbage bags. They will also remove, litter, debris, or trash that is too large, heavy, or hazardous for your group to remove.

4. Receive Recognition for your group's hard work!

Each adopted section of road will be marked with two signs with your group's name. We will order your signs and have them installed at the proper locations. However, the greater reward will be your group's satisfaction in knowing they helped make Luna County safer and cleaner.

Keep Luna County Beautiful sponsors community cleanups once a month. Local youth and civic organizations can get paid for their help in keeping our community beautiful. If your organization is interested in a community cleanup, please contact KLCB administrator at 575-543-6625. Spots fill up fast so call ASAP to reserve your clean up. If you are interested in volunteering your time, call the KLCB office or check the calendar for the next community cleanup.
