Welcome to Keep Covington/Newton Beautiful (KCNB)!
As an affiliate of Keep Georgia Beautiful and Keep America Beautiful, KCNB provides environmental education in our community. KCNB works on various projects focusing on litter prevention, beautification, recycling, and water pollution prevention. KCNB staff and volunteers visit schools with puppet shows and other educational programs, speak at club and organizational meetings, and participate in festivals and expos. KCNB also sponsors cleanups, recycling events, and awareness contests throughout the year. KCNB relies upon government and grant funding, private contributions, and volunteer participation.
To challenge, motivate, and inspire everyone to take responsibility for a clean and beautiful community

REPORT LITTERING AND ILLEGAL DUMPING:
Call 911 if you witness anyone littering or dumping. Many residents are hesitant to call 911, but doing so allows your complaint to be registered in the system and is the recommended and proper way to report.
GARBAGE DISPOSAL AND RECYCLING
All Newton County residents (including those within the city limits of Covington, Mansfield, Newborn, Oxford and Porterdale) with hang tags can take trash and recycling to any Newton County Neighborhood Recycling Center. (Please scroll down and continue to read for more information about purchasing hang tags.) City of Covington and City of Oxford residents have curbside trash and recycling pickup through their respective cities and may request bins by calling Covington City Hall at 770-385-2000 or Oxford City Hall at 770-786-7004. With hang tags, residents who live outside those city limits can take trash and recycling to centers or can contract with private garbage haulers for curbside service. Please see list below. KCNB does not provide residential recycling bins.
