Keep N 11/15/2017

As an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, we educate and encourage our region to reuse, repurpose, recycle and keep toxins out of air, water and landfills. Our volunteers operate two weekly Recycle Centers for free drop-off of paper, cardboard, metals, electronics, clothing, plastic or glass bottles, auto/marine batteries and more. In our office we use and wash towels, plates, thermal mugs, glassware and silverware rather than disposables. Our recycle bin receives everything from soup cans to toilet paper inserts. We take all plastic film and plastic bags to local grocers for recycling. We bring our lunches in reusable containers or lunchbags. Single-use batteries go to the Hazardous Waste collection. Ink/toner cartridges are recycled through non-profit organizations or office supply stores. We recycle cell phones, periodically donating to Cell Phones for Soldiers. Join us! www.knib.org
