Locals urged to join April’s Sabine Trash Bash cleanup

The month-long Sabine Parish Trash Bash planned by the Sabine Leaders Against Litter, March 27-April 24, is an opportunity to assist and encourage residents, businesses, churches, schools, sport teams, and civic groups to participate in working toward a more positive goal of a “clean Sabine” and the improvement in the quality of our everyday lives. A 4 week-long parish wide trash cleanup will give Sabine Parish communities time to get the deplorable conditions of some of our roadways, street, public areas, waterways, and communities cleaned up. Trash and litter along our highways and streets impact our lives and gives a negative impression for our residents and our community.

Litter is costly. In Louisiana, an estimated $40 million in taxpayer dollars are spent each year on litter removal, abatement, education and enforcement. It costs $11.5 billion every year to clean up litter in the U.S. according to a study conducted by Keep Louisiana Beautiful.
