Hurricane Matthew

Resiliency has been defined as an occurrence of rebounding or springing back; the ability to recover quickly from depression or discouragement. The aftermath of Hurricane Matthew has absolutely defined the resiliency of the citizens of Savannah-Chatham County. Although the area suffered a great deal of property damage, no lives were lost!
Clean up efforts and debris removal continues to be a priority and officials caution everyone to exercise caution near debris piles. Those piled up on the public right-of-way can be a safety hazard for pedestrians. They can easily obstruct sight-lines for motor vehicles traveling along roadways and may even contain sharp objects such as broken limbs and woody debris, or harbor snakes and pests. We can each share in the recovery by volunteering to assist an elderly or disabled resident clear debris from their yard. Or, gather a group of friends to gather debris in a common public area. Chatham County and its contractors are working diligently to collect debris but, they're always grateful for helping hands.  
Through the worse of times, the community spirit is strong and we are getting back to some normalcy after Hurricane Matthew continues. We all know that our community won't magically recover overnight but it will take time. We also know that we will recover. We are, after all, a community of resiliency!
Borrow our recycling bins for your event! If you need recycling for an upcoming event please contact us. You can pick up the bins at the Eisenhower Recycling Center and return them during regular operating hours.
Thanks to the students from Woodville Tompkins for helping clean up Lake Mayer on Saturday, September 17th, because of you six bags of litter were removed!

Yard Sale
Picture this...October 24th, 2016, 7:45 AM! It was a clear, breezy morning with sunshine galore! Worker bees (oh, make that people) were scurrying all over the place in preparation for the big event at 8:00 AM. Then, it happened! The clock struck 8:00 AM and others began to gather. The kick off to the Keep Chatham Beautiful Yard Sale had begun!  
People continued to wander into the Chatham County Resource Conservation Education Center located at 1321 Eisenhower Drive in steady streams during the morning. It was a definite success, with a variety of items being sold from jewelry for .50 to a solid wood table that sold for $25. Of course, there are always those among the crowd that are willing to negotiate with pricing and they were accommodated as well. The sale garnered more than $515 to assist Keep Chatham Beautiful in the promoting greater responsibility for the environment of Chatham County. Unsold items were donated to Old Savannah City Mission and those of a more artistic nature were turned in for store credit at Starlandia (recycled art supply store on Bull Street) to fund future projects.
Keep Chatham Beautiful would like to thank everyone that worked so hard to organize this event and those that volunteered to make it a success. Special thanks to a group of students studying at Savannah State University. They were outstanding in greeting and interacting with the customers that supported the event!
