Litter Prevention Committee is responsible for a number of projects each aimed to promote Little Rock as a litter free city: Annual City Wide Cleanup, the Great Arkansas Cleanup, and the Annual Litter Survey/Index are yearly events and activities that we hold with support from affiliates.

Public Awareness and Fundraising Committee The more we know, the more effective we are at making positive changes in our and other peoples’ lives.

We share information on not only the problem but how each of us are part of the solution
