Three key factors guide the recycling work of Keep Nebraska City Beautiful: convenience, communication, and cause. While recycling may be an idea we all understand, motivating people to take action and understand the many benefits of recycling is part of the challenge faced by the community.
In order to get into the community and be front-and-center with their programs, Keep Nebraska City Beautiful (KNBC) promotes recycling with two local resources: the Morton James Public Library and the local Walmart.
At the library, patrons may bring in their unwanted magazines, simply dropping them off at the library’s main circulation desk during regular hours. The library will collect the materials, reusing and recycling them appropriately.
At Walmart, look for the bright green printer-ink cartridge recycling bin, as well as the blue plastic film recycling bin. By recycling these commonly used items, individuals can make a difference in their community.
The Keep Nebraska City Beautiful team makes presentations in schools for all age levels, and also holds informational meetings with area clubs and organizations. KNCB holds two major cleanup events each year, and promotes volunteering across the community.
By educating and engaging individuals to recycle more of the right things the right way—at home, at work and on-the-go, KNCB helps to make recycling more economically viable, a benefit the entire community shares.
