Recycling - It's not rocket science. As a matter of fact, it continues to be one of the easiest ways to green up your community! Join communities across the country as they celebrate America Recycles Day. This is the one, official day dedicated to promoting recycling and educating the public about its many benefits.
The intention of the Oklahoma Clean Community Award is to provide recognition to entities (i.e., towns, cities, tribes, etc.) that participate in cleaning up tire dumps, implement measures to stop illegal tire dumping in their communities, and encourage good environmental stewardship.
Each year, Keep Oklahoma Beautiful calls for nominations for environmental awards in a number of categories. The prestigious awards are presented at KOB's highly anticipated Awards Recognition Banquet in November. The best of the environmental best in Oklahoma are honored.
Fresh Paint Days is a program designed to encourage volunteers to seek out unsightly community structures and renovate them with the creative use of resources. Willing volunteers make use of donated paint and a stipend for supplies to transform their building with the application of fresh paint, a little creativity, and a lot of elbow grease!
GAC is a nationwide project of Keep America Beautiful. As an affiliate of KAB, KOB coordinates cleanup activities in Oklahoma. Everything kicks off on March 1 and ends May 31.

Every litter bit hurts, and Litter Education is a program helping to spread that message. By providing opportunities through creative projects, the three programs are developed to teach students about the harmful effects of littering and the importance of reducing, reusing, and recycling.
