County supervisors provide updates on litter cleanup campaign

County Offers Citizens and Organizations Prizes and Recognition for Adopting-A-Spot and Helping Clean Up the County

On Saturday, April 9, 2022, the Pulaski County Board of Supervisors kicked off the second year of their Adopt – A – Spot campaign by distributing clean up supplies and picking up litter in their respective districts. Over seventy (70) bags were given out and fifty-three (53) bags of trash, twenty-three (23) tires, one (1) lawnmower, one (1) bucket, four (4) signs and a television were reported collected on kick-off day. In the last month, citizens and groups have picked up two hundred and seventy-two (272) bags.

The Board of Supervisors would like to thank all who participated in the kick-off event and to those who continue with efforts to keep our county beautiful by picking up trash and litter. The Board would like to express its gratitude to Cub Scout Pack 742, Scouts Troop 158-G and the Americares volunteers who have been cleaning up in Pulaski over the past month.

It is not too late to Adopt-A-Spot! Those who volunteer to participate will receive an Adopt-A-Spot sign to put up at their spot or area with their name or logo. At the end of the campaign, there will be prizes awarded to those who have collected the greatest amount of trash. Certificates of appreciation will also be presented to all individuals and/or groups that participate and submit contact information.

2021 participants will be recognized with awards given at the Board of Supervisors meeting on Monday, April 25, 2022, at 7 p.m.

Pulaski County will provide bags, gloves, and vests to groups for use at any time. These will be available along with the Adopt-A-Spot signs at the County Administration office.
