FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.— The City of Fayetteville is seeking seven volunteers to conduct the annual Keep Fayetteville Beautiful Litter Index. As an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, Keep Fayetteville Beautiful is required to perform a litter index each year to gauge litter issues in our community.
The 2018 litter index survey will be conducted on Wednesday, July 25 from 8 a.m. to approximately 4 p.m. and will begin and end at the Recycling and Trash Collection Division facility (1560 S.

Volunteers will be treated to lunch.
Please contact Brian Pugh, waste reduction coordinator, by telephone 479-718-7685 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
