KKG honored as a Proud Partner 2014 by City of Houston
 

Mayor's Proud Partner Award 2014Mayor Parker and Keep Houston Beautiful recently honored Keep Kingwood Green with the Mayor's Proud Partner Award at a luncheon at the Hilton Americas in downtown Houston on October 27th.  Accepting the award for Keep Kingwood Green was Hal Opperman, president of the board. 

The award cited the work that Keep Kingwood Green has done in the Lake Houston Area to both increase recycling options and educate residents and businesses about recycling.  The non profit 501-c-3 organization was established in 2008 out of a movement by Brigitte Collee, who was appalled by the lack of recycling options in Kingwood and the area. 

KKG has worked to increase the weekly recycling at the Metro lot, have helped to make the e-waste recycling on the first Saturday of every month a success.  Another area they have focused attention is to increase the amount of BOPA items recycled in Kingwood.

In addition to working with the City, KKG has worked closely with the Humble ISD to bring recycling to all schools.  They have worked with both trash service companies and recycling companies to increase their services in the area.  Another area where they have been successful is helping to bringing curbside recycling to many neighborhoods in the Lake Houston area.  This decision is made by each Community Association.  Keep Kingwood Green continues to work with any CA that wants to discuss this option
