“We can indeed have a cleaner community, and I think it’s very important that we hold folks accountable when they contribute to the litter in our community,” said East Baton Rouge Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome.

If you aren’t able to participate in the designated clean-up events, you are still encouraged to collect litter in your own neighborhood.
