Keep Covington/Newton Beautiful, Covington, GA
Keep Covington/Newton Beautiful (KCNB) works with the Newton County Landfill staff and many volunteers to educate our community about recycling. Newton County, GA has 11 Neighborhood Recycling Centers strategically located for residents’ convenience. At these Centers, residents can dispose of their trash at no charge and can also recycle glass, aluminum cans, plastic, steel or tin cans, newspapers, corrugated cardboard, “other” paper products–paperboard, magazines, junk mail, etc., used motor oil and filters, yard waste, scrap metals and appliances, and tires.
On the first Saturday of each month, residents can take electronics, paints and pesticides, and used cooking oil to the Newton County Landfill to be recycled. During Saturday collections, they can also take clothes and bicycles, which are donated to the Salvation Army. One educational program that KCNB offers is a puppet show, performed in local public elementary schools.
