Defining litter, identifying the causes, and reducing it by organizing cleanups, and promoting proper handling of discarded waste in our communities. We love to get people passionate about combating litter in our community.
We get excited about the 3 R's:
Recycle: Turning something old into something new and useful.
Reuse: Repurpose items or materials.
Reduce: Find ways to reduce energy in and around the home and find ways to reduce waste.
KBB works to improve the visual aspects of our communities by planting trees, and gardens throughout the parish, encourage neighborhoods to beautify and maintain their exteriors and highway and shoreline beautification.

On February 28th, KBB members and liaisons performed a random, statistical sample survey of our parish to determine the Bossier Parish litter index for 2020.
Sad to say the teams did find litter and debris, happy to say we are working on a trash attack plan.
Stay tuned for the results and ways you can help with spot cleanups in your area.

A BIG HUGE Congrats and great job going out to Plantation Park Elementary School and Bossier Elementary School.
These fantastic do gooders, collected their plastic milk containers last week in the spirit of Recycling Day and filled 35 gallon trash bins 14 times! 14 times ya'll for a total of 518 gallons collected.
We are so proud of our young ones learning about the importance of recycling.
Thank you Patricia Thrash and Theresa for your help and high fives going out to our own KBB members Scott Lawson for the milk container idea and Lorenzo Johnson for leading the project. Awesome Job!
