Business Recycling

Keep Pickens Beautiful will work with local businesses to help set up your recycling program to reduce trash headed to the landfills.  While KPB does not offer curbside pickup, we will work with you to develop a system that will work for you.  Help reduce waste while improving your environmental stewardship!  Let us know how we can help!
