What a year 2020 was! Keep Little Rock Beautiful had 52 neighborhoods, businesses, organizations, and Adopt-A-Street groups register to join the City Wide Cleanup. On March 10, we distributed T-shirts, litter grabbers, trash bags, and gloves to 50 registered groups. On March 13, COVID-19 came to Arkansas. Limits on the number of people that could gather. Most of the scheduled cleanups planned for March 14 were postponed.

Keep America Beautiful extended the window of the Great American Cleanup into October. We followed up with our registered groups to encourage them to use their supplies and to do a cleanup, no matter how small, considering people’s reluctance to gather due to the virus.

Twenty cleanups were reported to KLRB with these results:

  • 263 volunteers. This was a value to the community of $16,839 (according to Keep America Beautiful’s volunteer value rate of $24.69/hour)
  • 391 bags of trash, 37 bags of recyclables
  • 76.92 tons of bulky waste and litter in dumpsters
  • 159 city blocks cleaned
  • 3.5 miles of trails cleaned
  • 4.5 acres of parks cleaned

We want to thank these sponsors who supported KLRB’s City Wide Cleanup.
