Keep Norfolk Beautiful works to lead our community to reduce litter, recycle right, and beautify Norfolk through education and volunteerism. These efforts help support clean, safe, and resilient neighborhoods.

Litterati City Fingerprint Project 

The global litter data science company, Litterati, has selected the City of Norfolk, along with Hayward, CA and Memphis, TN, to participate in the exciting new City Fingerprint Project using the Analyze platform! Analyze utilizes a data science approach to develop a litter composite baseline throughout certain sections of the city, including commercial corridors or illegal dumping hotspots. In turn, this provides government partners with the who, what, where and when on litter to better develop prevention strategies. Keep Norfolk Beautiful looks forward to the partnership and strongly believes this will improve our efforts to create a litter free Norfolk. For more information on Litterati, visit now.
