CABOT, Ark. (KTHV) - Officials with the City of Cabot and Cabot City Beautiful are asking the public to join them in cleaning up the city.

The two organizations are working together to host the annual “Cabot Clean-Up Day.” This event will be held in conjunction with the national “Great American Clean-Up” Campaign & statewide “Keep Arkansas Beautiful” Month.

Everyone in the Cabot area is encouraged to participate in this city-wide cleanup endeavor: Civic & service organizations, church & youth groups, school groups & clubs, scouting groups, individuals, families, neighborhoods and businesses.

 “Cabot Clean-Up & Hazardous Waste Round-Up 2016” will be held on Saturday, March 19th, from 9 a.m. until 12’ noon.

Cabot Clean-Up and Hazardous Waste Round-Up 2016 will take place on Saturday, March 19 from 9 a.m. until noon. Volunteers should meet at the Cabot Jr. High-South on Panther Trail no earlier than 9 a.m. on Saturday morning and check-in at the Registration Canopies. Volunteers will be assigned routes by event coordinators, if they have not already designated their own area(s) of concern.  Orange safety vests & garbage bags will be available.  Participants are encouraged to bring sturdy work gloves.   

There will also be an Awards Presentation Ceremony at 9 a.m. for the “Keep Cabot Beautiful” Poster Contest winners; Grades K-4.

At noon, we invite all volunteers to meet back at the Panther Trail Parking Lot to enjoy some free food & drinks.  Centennial Bank’s Grill Team will be on-site for the cooking!!

“Cabot is an amazing community.  We all have a responsibility to keep it clean and attractive,” says Becky Boyett, president of Cabot City Beautiful, Inc.  “If Cabot is littered & ill-kept, our potential to attract industry & tourism can be significantly impacted.  Simple steps can greatly affect economic development.   A fresh coat of paint, a few new flower plantings, roadsides & waterways free of litter; they all can make a big difference in Cabot’s future.  We need volunteers to come help us Keep Cabot Beautiful!”

This year’s local “Great American Cleanup” co-coordinator, Matt Webber, stated that CCB will again provide a “drop-off point” for the disposal of various Electronic Waste (E-waste) & Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) materials, to include latex paints (waste & recyclable), oil-based paints/thinners, motor oil, antifreeze, fluorescent bulbs, pesticides & herbicides, household cleaners, household batteries (NiCad, alkaline & lithium), automotive batteries & tires(must-be-off-the-rim).  Computer components, TVs, VCRs, and other types of electronic equipment will be accepted.  Any appliance containing Freon must have proper documentation stating that the Freon is legally removed.  If not, items will not be accepted.  Scrap metals will be collected by local Boy Scout Troop.  All these drop-off services will be available for the community on Clean-Up Day = for one day only and at “no charge” to the public.  However donations, to cover the substantial expense, can be made to Cabot City Beautiful, Inc.

If you need additional information, contact CCB at (501) 920-2122.  Many thanks to our community and we look forward to seeing you out & about to Keep Cabot Beautiful on March 19.
