KKCB is the instructional force in Keith County for over 30 years in environmental education. Our organization, funded through grants from the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality, focuses on education in schools, in business and throughout the community to reduce litter, increase recycling and promote sustainable living for a clean, green beautiful place to live.
Keep America Afiliate
KKCB is a recognized Presidential Circle affiliate of Keep America Beautiful and a Gold affiliate of Keep Nebraska Beautiful. Each of these designations requires specific performance by the partner. We participate in America Recycles Day events and the Great American Cleanup national programs and also offer additional opportunities for our communities to reduce litter and recycle.
As a non-profit, KKCB is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors who bring experience in business, non-profit, education, and environmental issues. Together with the executive director, they assist in creating and overseeing programs that are manageable, responsible and sustainable. The board meets once a month in the city offices on the second Wednesday of the month.
