Recycling old televisions, refrigerators, air conditioning units and more. Some items require a small fee for removal of chemicals such as monitors and Freon items. KNIB is moving from “cash only” TO “Credit or Debit Card preferred” This will make it easier and safer for customers and volunteers. Donations may also be made by debit and credit card.
They are in the office daily to help service the community. They teach reducing, reusing and recycling and can answer any questions you may have. Once you see and learn how saving the environment is easy and fun, you’ll be hooked for life.
