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 email@example.com
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.
