Join Keep Arkansas Beautiful's cleanup initiative through October
LITTLE ROCK – It's not too late to join the Keep Arkansas Beautiful Great Arkansas Cleanup, which ends Oct. 31, 2017. KAB is encouraging Arkansans to participate in a cleanup in their own community by the end of October.
Last year's Great Arkansas Cleanup featured more than 140 community events across the state involving more than 7,000 Arkansans, who picked up more than 210,000 pounds of litter from roughly 1,735 miles of roadways and waterways, and collected over 900,000 pounds of bulky waste at drop-off events.
"We only have a few weeks left of the Great Arkansas Cleanup, but plenty of opportunities to volunteer," said Liz Philpott, volunteer program manager at KAB. "We encourage every Arkansan to organize or participate in a local cleanup event and help keep our home clean and green."
Don't miss your chance to volunteer during the Great Arkansas Cleanup. KAB will provide cleanup materials and supplies to registered cleanups, such as trash bags, gloves and safety vests to local events, while supplies last.
Volunteers may visit KeepArkansasBeautiful.com to access the event calendar to see all scheduled cleanups. Those who would like to volunteer can also email email@example.com
or call toll-free 888-742-8701.
