Keep Northern Illinois Beautiful - KNIB


Keep Northern Illinois Beautiful is a 501(c)(3) private educational organization founded in 1988, and is the only affiliate of Keep America Beautiful in North Central Illinois. Our mission is to improve our environment through education, public awareness and community involvement. We educate thousands of local school children on environmental issues, recycling, reuse and proper management of landfills in classroom presentations. We also operate two volunteer-operated recycling centers in Winnebago County serving people who may not have curbside pickup of recyclable paper, cardboard, plastic and glass bottles, tin/steel cans, all metals, most electronics and bagged textiles. See for a list of special events and acceptable recyclable items.
