Recycling At the Park Made Easieralt

KBGIB is one of only two Georgia Keep America Beautiful affiliates

to be awarded the national KAB/Dr. Pepper-Snapple public park recycling grant.

This summer a total of 26 new bottle/can recycle bins will be placed in

Glynn County and City of Brunswick public parks, making it easier for

visitors and residents to recycle when spending time relaxing and

having fun in our community's public spaces.

 


 

No Butts About It

waste receptacles that will be located in City of Brunswick and Glynn County

public spaces.  Also included in the grant award are a supply of pocket

and vehicle ashtrays to encourage cigarette litter reduction.
