FORT SMITH, AR – the semi-annual litter pickup, “Great Arkansas Cleanup”, hosted by Keep Fort Smith Beautiful has been canceled due to honoring the social distancing community efforts to slow down the spread of COVID-19.
Although the event as such has been canceled, KFSB board members are encouraging members of the community to go out on their own and pick up litter in their neighborhoods while practicing social distancing. Keep Arkansas Beautiful Commissioner, Paula Linder added, “We hope that people won’t let this situation stop them from finding places around town and cleaning them. Remember, if we as member of this community don’t clean up litter in Fort Smith, who will?” Sharing the before-and-after pictures on Keep Fort Smith Beautiful Facebook Page is also encouraged.
The overall purpose of this event is to engage the local community in cleaning up various locations within the city. KFSB is now focusing on the next organized litter pickup which will take place in Fall.
