Saturday To-Do: Keep Arkansas Beautiful Great Arkansas Cleanup

Looking for ways to reduce our waste and beautify the environment through community clean up efforts in Arkansas? Each fall, thousands of Arkansans remove tons of trash from our state’s roadways, shorelines, parks and public areas during the Great Arkansas Cleanup, the statewide community-improvement campaign.

Communities large and small show their commitment to the Great Arkansas Cleanup campaign by recruiting volunteers of all ages and taking on a variety of community clean up and environmental-improvement projects.

And tomorrow, clean ups and recycling events are scheduled all over Arkansas:
