Keep Coppell Beautiful Coppell sponsors shredding for our residents twice yearly! We pair shredding with our EcoCoppell Earthfest celebration in April and in November to celebrate America Recycles day. Residents are invited to stop by the City of Coppell Service Center (816 S. Coppell Road) to securely shred documents a shredding truck will be present to safely shred documents on site. Up to four boxes can be dropped off (maximum size of each box being 9" x 12" x 17", or the size of a bankers box) per person per event. All shredded paper will be recycled and your container will be returned to you. Residents are encouraged to come early to ensure space in the truck for their documents.
Upcoming Shredding Dates: Saturday, November 14th from 8:00am-12:00pm

Organize a litter cleanup - Choose a location where you notice a need and fill out a request for clean-up supplies. We will provide trash bags, gloves, and trash pickers upon request. You can do this year-round, but t-shirts will be provided for groups that participate in the annual April event which contributes to a nationwide effort, the Great American Cleanup. Clean Coppell volunteers that wear their t-shirts to Earthfest get a free treat!
Organize a beautification project – Be creative! If you have a project in mind and the people willing to do it, you can submit an application to have KCB sponsor the supplies. The project should benefit the community through preservation or beautification. Some ideas include:
KCB Teen is an opportunity for students, ages 14-17, to assist Keep Coppell Beautiful during January-May and August-December in planning and implementing KCB programming.

Share your passion for the environment and gain valuable resume experience by contributing to this teen volunteer group.
