“Talking Trash” – Creating Waste Warriors

Talking Trash

As a part of Keep Fort Smith Beautiful’s mission to maintain a successful and aesthetically pleasing community, we have launched the “Talking Trash” program. This program is designed to teach the youngest members of our community the importance of keeping our spaces clean and protecting the environment. As a part of the program, the youngest participants will become the Waste Warriors, committed to taking the action to improve our environment.

The Waste Warriors’ Action Plan:

– Stop using plastic bags at the store and only use cloth bags

– Make sure your family recycles responsibly

– Build a compost bin

– Reduce, reuse, refuse

– Pick up litter when you see it
