KAB loves to collaborate with other organizations! Through these collaborations we are able to reach more of our community so that we can educate people on why recycling is so important and how KAB can help make it easy and fun. Learn more about our different collaborations in the past and stay tuned to the Events section here as well as on Facebook.
The curbside recycling test program started February 21, 2018. Each participant is given a magnet and brochure of everything KAB recycles.. Our recycling team picks up recyclables bimonthly. This program will be open to the public in May.
Black Ops is an education program that is conducted throughout 3rd grade classrooms at Grandview Elementary School, Saint Agnes Academy, and the Immanuel Lutheran School in Alliance. Environmental missions are delivered to the classrooms and the students complete them together with their teachers. Some of the missions require the students to collect recyclable items from home. When the classes have completed their missions they return them to the Education Coordinator. As the missions are completed, the students progress through different ranks of the military. They begin as privates and graduate from the program as colonels. The students receive dog tags made of recycled tires at the beginning of the program and t-shirts at the end.
Black Belts is an education program for 4th graders at Grandview Elementary School and Saint Agnes Academy in Alliance. The students pick up their missions at school, but complete them at home. Each take-home task also has a “side-mission” associated with it where the students can visit different community organizations (such as the Alliance Public Library and the Carnegie Arts Center) and complete extra tasks. As the students progress through the different missions, they earn pieces of karate belts that they can attach to their Black Belts keychain and display on their backpacks.
The KAB Club is a lunchtime club for students at the Alliance Middle School. These students perform litter pickups and help recycle plastic water bottles at lunch time. They also work on other activities such as helping the Education Coordinator create bulletin boards, creating upcycled Christmas tree ornaments, and sorting crayons for recycling.
