America's Trash Talks to Keep Kids Alive


"America's Trash Talks to 
Keep Kids Alive"
"America's Trash Talks to Keep Kids Alive" is the latest initiative from Keep Kids Alive Drive 25. GEICO is on board as our first national sponsor and the AAA Cornhusker Motor Club in our first state partner - Nebraska. Initiatives are spreading quickly, including:
  • Colonial Heights, VA
  • Phoenix, AZ
  • Lithia, FL
  • O'Fallon, IL
  • Omaha, NE
  • Millbourne, PA
  • Oro Valley, AZ
  • Peters Township, PA
  • Wichita, KS
  • Fenton, MO
  • Florissant, MO
  • Fayetteville, NC
The premise is simple; to get the "Keep Kids Alivemessage out on the side of every trash can in America - both curbside and in alleys. Messages include:



We welcome you to partner – through your neighborhood/homeowners association, local trash hauler, business, school, faith community, or civic organization (or all of these organizations working together).


Through use of Keep Kids Alive Drive 25
®Be Aware! Drive With Care®No Need To Speed®, and Check Your Speed® decals. The goal is to decal every trash can on every neighborhood street and alleyway in America


To reduce motor vehicle deaths and injuries. It's that simple - get all citizens involved in sending out one or more of the "Keep Kids Alive" safety messages in order to create safer roadway environments for the benefit of pedestrians and cyclists of all ages, as well as motorists themselves. (The City of Oro Valley, AZ applied these decals to trash cans and saw average speeds plummet to 24.5 mph on residential streets - a 13% decrease.)

What is needed?

Partners - environmental waste companies, insurance companies, local businesses, schools, faith communities, and civic organizations to partner with Keep Kids Alive Drive 25 in implementing this goal in communities nationwide.

Local Trash Hauler in Escondido, CA affixed

signs to their trucks, making them rolling billboards inviting all to slow down on residential streets. Papillion Sanitation, a Waste Connections Company, will join in with rolling billboards in Spring 2013

What is the role of partners?

Examples include the following:
  • Environmental waste companies that provide trash and recycling bins to municipalities and neighborhoods add one or more of the Keep Kids Alive messages via decals on the side of all trash/recycling bin.
  • Insurance companies utilize agents to distribute decals to policyholders. These decals can integrate company logos into decals in order to recognize sponsorship
  • Businesses can sponsor decals and distribute through customer service, check out lanes, service counters, as well as through employees. Businesses can be recognized by integrating company logos into decals to recognize sponsorship
  • Schools and civic organizations can distribute decals to families and members. Civic organizations can partner as local/regional/national sponsors as well
How can your business, school, civic organization get involved?
