LITTER CLEAN UP SUPPLIES ARE NOW AVAILABLE FOR CHECK OUT AT LOCAL PUBLIC LIBRARY
St. Martin Parish Library is proud to partner with Keep Louisiana Beautiful (KLB) and the State Library of Louisiana as a Get Down and Clean Up program participant. St. Martin Parish Library is one of the 79+ public libraries in 31 parishes to help launch this program in Louisiana. Library card holders can now visit participating libraries to check out and return litter clean up supplies.
The Get Down and Clean Up program provides citizens an outlet for accessing supplies to improve their communities. People of all ages can participate in this program, but adult supervision (18+ and up) is required. With their supplies, participants will be given instructions with a QR code leading to an online reporting form for tracking hours, trash bags collected, and other pertinent statistics.
“This program provides the perfect opportunity for students to get service hours for school,” said Susan Russell, KLB Executive Director. “It’s also a great hands-on way for families to care for their neighborhood. We encourage you to have fun with it. Play some music and dance your way to a cleaner Louisiana!”
The launch of this program follows Love the Boot Week, Louisiana’s largest litter clean up and beautification effort organized by KLB. During Love the Boot Week, 12,777 citizens removed 313 tons of litter.
