Great Arkansas Cleanup under way

The Great Arkansas Cleanup is under way through Oct. 31 throughout the state, including Pine Bluff and Jefferson County.

“Litter is everyone’s responsibility,” said Kelli Kennedy, executive director of Pine Bluff/Jefferson County Clean & Beautiful. “Although not everyone litters, we do all live in this community together and must work together to keep it clean and green. We do this out of community pride to maintain our outstanding quality of life and to improve our local economy.”

This year’s local cleanup is sponsored by the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality, Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department, Keep America Beautiful and Keep Arkansas Beautiful Foundation.
