Recycle Bin Loan Program

Keep Oklahoma Beautiful

Let Keep Oklahoma Beautiful help you recycle at your office or events! In partnership with PepsiCo Recycling, KOB currently has recycle bins available for you to use to collect plastic bottles and aluminum cans. Neighborhood cleanups, business meetings, conferences, special events, and concerts are just a few ideas of what your organization could use these bins for. Help us spread the word that recycling is important across Oklahoma.

Keep in mind that KOB's office is based in Oklahoma City. Due to our resources we are unable to ship the recycle bins to your organization. However, we will work with you to get you the bins. If you are located in the Tulsa area, you can coordinate with M.e.t. in Tulsa to borrow some of their recycling bins.
