How can you contribute to a cleaner, more beautiful community?

The mission of the KACCB program is to educate and empower citizens and businesses with the resources to take action as environmental stewards of litter prevention, waste reduction, and beautification. As a nonprofit 501c3 organization, the KACCB Board of Directors raises funds to support environmental education and community improvement projects.  The KACCB Board of Directors meets the first Wednesday of every month from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. with additional committee work being conducted between these meetings.
