KCB 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 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 by 12 by 17 inches, 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.

Take an active role in cleaning up Coppell streets, parks, and neighborhoods! This year around program, encourages community groups from all around town come together to do litter cleanups and beautification projects. In the past, residents hosted dozens of litter clean-up, spruced up fences, pulled weeds, and handed out plant starts. Getting involved is easy! If you have a project that will make our community cleaner and greener, fill out this request form to have the City of Coppell sponsor your supplies. For further questions, please email the KCB team.
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:
- Graffiti removal
- Helping an elderly or disabled neighbor meet code requirements for their yard
- Planting a monarch waystation to attract butterflies
- Restoring shared gardens such as community or school gardens
In 2019, the Keep Coppell Beautiful Teen Committee, or KCB Teens, was implemented with the purpose of providing an opportunity for teens to benefit Coppell’s community and society by acting through service. This committee is a way for interested teens, ages 14-17, to advocate for environmental change and inspire others to do so as well. Accepted KCB Teen members will work together as a group to brainstorm, plan and implement sustainability and environmental education programs throughout the semester. Semesters run January through May and August through December. Previous KCB Teen projects include litter clean-ups, educational outreach to fellow CISD high school students about Environmental Racism, educational outreach at the Coppell Farmers Market, fundraisers, and more! Share your passion for the environment, serve as role models in the Coppell community and gain valuable resume experience by contributing to this teen volunteer group. Registration for the Fall 2021 Semester will open in June 2021.
