Keep Little Rock Beautiful (KLRB) is seeking volunteers to participate in the annual Litter Index survey taking place tomorrow, August 8th, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. If you can help, please contact Walter Jennings at (501)224-9565 or WalterJennings@prodigy.net. Volunteers will meet at 9 a.m. at Little Rock City Center on Pine and 12th streets. City vehicles and drivers will take the volunteers to different sub-areas in Little Rock to rate the litter.
As an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, KLRB conducts the Litter Index survey once a year to document progress in reducing litter. Volunteers, in conjunction with KLRB members, survey over 150 miles of city streets to assess the amount of litter present. Participants rate the amount of litter in each area using a rating scale provided by Keep America Beautiful.
Once the results of the survey are compiled and analyzed, KLRB organizes cleanups, educational programs or other community-improvement projects for the most littered areas of the city. Performing the Litter Index survey each year helps KLRB track the overall progress of local litter prevention and control measures.
