What is KetterGreen?
The City of Kettering is committed to working locally to improve the social, economical and environmental well being of our community. As part of this commitment, the City has formed KetterGreen, a committee that helps promote and organize environmental events within the City facilities as well as the community. Events KetterGreen has hosted or organized over the last year are prescription drug drop offs to prevent these medications from going down our streams, hazardous household waste drop off, and document shredding. In addition to these events, KetterGreen has successfully implemented a better recycling program within city owned facilities and new recycling bins throughout our great parks. There are many more event that are being planned so we encourage you stop back at this page to get the latest news.
The City also recently opened the new Habitat Environmental Center located at 3036 Bellflower Street, Kettering, Ohio. This is were many of the City’s environmental classes will take place.
