The Sabine Parish Leaders Against Litter met on March 15, 2021, after not being able to meet for over a year due to the pandemic. The period of March 27 – April 24, 2021 was set to get the deplorable conditions of some of our roadways, streets, public areas, and communities cleaned up.

Sheriff Aaron Mitchell and his chief deputy, Brad Walker, were in attendance at the meeting. Sheriff Mitchell explained that Covid-19 had impacted the inmate work program and all inmate crews were kept in the detention center off work detail due to the pandemic. They began picking up trash along state highways a few weeks ago, but it will take about 10 months to cover all state highways in the parish. The public is being asked to assist.
