Organization Gets Tough on Litter

Clean Harbors Planning Community Clean-up to Coincide with Keep El Dorado Beautiful Initiative

Keep El Dorado Beautiful has said that it plans to focus on spreading awareness about and the enforcement of state litter laws and city codes to clean up El Dorado.

The group has taken its case to the El Dorado City Council and the El Dorado Police Department, asking that the city post signs around town, particularly in problem areas, to warn against littering and list the possible penalties for doing so.

Clean Harbors has expressed interest in joining with Ward Three aldermen Kensel Spivey and Willie McGhee for another community cleanup in the spring.
In the spring of 2016, Clean Harbors teamed up with the aldermen and Tony Henry, a Clean Harbors employee and former alderman of Ward Three, for a coordinated cleanup of the city's third ward, and the event attracted 200 - 300 volunteers.

KEB president Janis Van Hook said there had been some discussion about hosting the event in April, which encompasses Earth Day and the start of Clean Harbors' annual hazardous household waste collection service.
