Annual Litter Survey

Volunteers are needed to ride around Little Rock and evaluate the cleanness of Little Rock’s streets and neighborhood. To get involved contact us at info@klb.org

Volunteerism

Assist KLRB in our various cleanup activities. Experience and research tell us that litter attracts more litter. A clean community discourages littering and illegal dumping. By volunteering you can make a difference in the fight against litter.

Check our Calendar of Events for upcoming events.

Our next big event will be March 10, 2018, our City Wide Cleanup. Contact info@klrb.org to learn more or to get your organization or neighborhood engaged in the cleanup.
