The intention of the Oklahoma Clean Community Award is to provide recognition to those entities (i.e., towns, cities, rural communities, tribes, counties, extension units, etc.) that participate, cooperate, and/or collaborate in cleaning up tire dumps, implementing preventative measures to stop illegal tire dumping in their communities, and encourage good environmental stewardship through service projects.

In addition to participating in these cleanups, recognized communities must also register for the Great American Cleanup and one of KOB's other programs.
