Keep Indian River Beautiful, Inc. “KIRB” is at the forefront of recycling education in Indian River County.
We believe that the best way to reach the community is by going into the schools, by having the Great American Cleanup, Day of Service, International Coastal Cleanup, Earth Day, America Recycles Day, Plant Native Day, participating in local events and festivals, beach cleanups, adopt-a-programs, Clean Marina & boat programs and much more. By talking directly about the benefits of recycling and environmental conservation, these programs serve to maintain KIRB and help us keep our programs running.
