Keep Fallbrook Clean and Green is a volunteer organization dedicated to the environmental health and welfare of the Fallbrook community and operates as a Committee of the Fallbrook Beautification Alliance. Its major program is the highly popular Community CleanUp/Recycling Day held each September. KFCG has also sponsored a widely supported recycling program for household dry cell batteries; a free coupon/voucher program for downtown residents to dispose of large, unwanted household items as part of its mission to reduce illegal dumping in the community; the co-sponsorship and maintenance of the Military “Welcome Home” fence on East Mission Road; the local facilitation and support for the County’s Adopt-a-Road Program to reduce litter on our roads and highways; collaboration with the County in supporting and expanding their apartment recycling programs and their green business program; and other similar environmental projects.
