Anti-litter drive planned

Students and other volunteers will pick up litter and trash in White Hall on Saturday, Sept. 29, according to Lydia Scholebo, coordinator of the local Great Arkansas Cleanup campaign.

Individuals and groups who want to volunteer for the project should call City Hall at 247-2399 before 4:30 p.m. Friday.

Safety vests, gloves and trash bags will be distributed to the volunteers at 9 a.m. Sept. 29 when they meet at City Hall to receive assignments, Scholebo said.

The cleanup is scheduled to conclude between 10:30-11 a.m., when volunteers will meet behind City Hall for refreshments.

As part of the cleanup efforts, three dumpsters will be set up behind the fire station on Oct. 20 to collect white goods, tires and “extra garbage,” a spokesman said.
