Five local businesses and organizations have been recognized for their efforts in maintaining clean and attractive premises: Fort Frederica National Monument and The Wick received Clean Sweep awards for the fourth quarter of 2019; the Glynn County Airport Commission and Grandy’s Country Cupboard were each honored with five-year distinctions; and the College of Coastal Georgia received the Clean Sweep 10-year award.

Clean Sweep awards are presented quarterly by Keep Golden Isles Beautiful, the Brunswick-Golden Isles Chamber of Commerce and The Brunswick News.

A seven-member panel of community members selects the honorees based on their contribution to keeping the Golden Isles cleaner and greener.
