Keep Kennedale Beautiful Commission (KKB)
Simple Recycling No Longer Offering Curbside Service
Unfortunately, Simple Recycling curbside service is no longer available in the City of Kennedale. This was a service that allowed residents to recycle clothing and homegoods by leaving them at the curb for pickup. This change has no effect on the curbside recycling of household waste via the green rolling bins, which is still being offered.
Simple Recycling will continue to pick up items on Wednesday mornings from the First United Methodist Church (FUMC) Mission Store/Food Pantry. If you have items that are too worn to donate to the Mission Store, place them into an orange Simple Recycling bag and leave them on the FUMC porch that faces Spiller Street. Donations for the Mission Store can be left, instead, on the porch next to the garage that faces 4th Street.
NOTE: Due to public health concerns surrounding COVID-19, there will not be a "Bring It!" event this fall.

Purpose and Responsibilities
KKB engages residents and businesses to take greater responsibility for improving the community’s appearance and environment; and develop beautification events, programming, and outreach. The membership of KKB also serves as the Tree Advisory Board and the Tree City USA liaison.
Keep Texas Beautiful’s (KTB) mission is to educate and engage Texans to take responsibility for improving their community environment. Efforts are focused in three major areas: litter prevention, beautification, and waste reduction.
KKB would like to thank participants in the Adopt-A-Spot Program for their commitment to keeping Kennedale beautiful. During the 2018–19 fiscal year, volunteers spent 289 hours removing over 1,800 pounds of debris from local roadways

Butterfly Garden Locations
Through the National Wildlife Federation's (NWF) Mayors' Monarch Pledge, cities are committing to create habitats and educate citizens about how they can help preserve these butterflies. KKB and Mayor Brian Johnson are proud participants in the NWF Mayor's Monarch Pledge, which included issuing vouchers to residents to purchase milkweed and other nectar-producing plants. Thank you to Stegall's Nursery for their generous support of this program, which resulted in 29 butterfly gardens in the City of Kennedale!
