Trash Pickup

From Keep Carbondale Beautiful

Keep Carbondale Beautiful thanks all those in the Carbondale community who participated in their 30-Day Challenge.  Nearly 50 people reported that they had been out and picking up litter, and most said that they are doing it on a regular basis.   
Estimates are that hundreds of hours were put in.  “But more importantly,” according to Executive Director Anne Krippenstapel, “the community came together.  I am heartened by the stewardship of our citizens.”  Some people were out every day, especially if walking a dog.  Sunny warm days saw more participation, as recorded on Keep Carbondale Beautiful’s Facebook page.
Sponsors of the 30-Day Challenge cleanup include Burris Disposal, CIMCO Recycling, and Southern Recycling.  KCB also gets critical funding from the City of Carbondale.  All participants are eligible to receive a T-shirt or a tote-bag.  Contact Anne Krippenstapel for more information: 618-525-3075 or keepcb1326@gmail.com.
