Islip, NY - July 24, 2017 - Volunteers from the audit and tax firm KPMG gathered at Brookwood Hall Park on a beautiful morning in June for the unusual task of painting designs on trash cans for a Keep Islip Clean anti-litter project.
The group of eleven accountants used a variety of paint colors provided by the Town of Islip to decorate ten large trash drums with flowers, summer scenes and other colorful designs. The barrels will be placed at a number of local parks.
Studies by KIC’s parent organization, Keep America Beautiful, show conclusively that trash cans with attractive and whimsical designs encourage a higher percentage of use, thereby reducing litter in public places. This project is KPMG’s second outing with Keep Islip Clean. An employee group volunteered last year at KIC’s Project Bloom community gardens at Brookwood Hall Park in East Islip.
Keep Islip Clean, a certified affiliate of the national organization Keep America Beautiful, is a not-for-profit, 501c3, community service organization.
