The Keep Moline Beautiful Commission was formed in 2008 to work with volunteers to create a healthy, sustainable community environment promoting beautification, litter prevention, and recycling. As a Keep America Beautiful affiliation for the City of Moline, the commission has formalized many existing volunteer programs and developed several new programs and activities.
