Keep Horry County Beautiful's New Survey Asks for Input on Plastic Bags

Keep Horry County Beautiful, a subcommittee of the Horry County Parks and Open Space Board has a mission to end litter, reduce waste, and beautify communities. As part of this mission, Keep Horry County Beautiful and their partners have picked-up over 122,000 pounds of litter in 2018! In an effort to shape the future of a litter-free Horry County, Keep Horry County Beautiful and their partners including the Horry County Solid Waste Authority, Grand Strand Surfrider Foundation, CCU’s Sustain Coastal, and the Coastal Waccamaw Stormwater Education Consortium has launched a survey on recycling and single-use plastic bags intended to gather input to guide education and outreach.

Anyone interested in taking the survey is invited to access it online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/KHCBSingleUsePlastics. The survey is anticipated to be available for three to six months with an end date in April or May 2020. A link to the survey will be posted on the Keep Horry County Beautiful Facebook page and distributed via email to those who have expressed interest in receiving communication from Keep Horry County Beautiful.

Keep Horry County Beautiful To Conduct Community Clean Up Of A Portion Of Carolina Forest Boulevard

Conway, South Carolina – The Horry County Keep Horry County Beautiful (KHCB) Committee will partner with the Carolina Forest Rotary Club and the Carolina Forest Veterinary Hospital to clean up the stretch of Carolina Forest Boulevard from the intersection with US Hwy 501 to the entrance of Plantation Lakes on Saturday, January 19, 2013, from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. Cleanup group participants will meet in front of Beef O’Brady’s at 1:30 p.m.

The Community Cleanup Program encourages civic, neighborhood and other community groups to adopt county roads, parks, playgrounds and other public areas for regular cleanups. The program is based on a two-year contract, which requires groups to hold six or more cleanups per contract period depending on the level of litter in their area. Community Cleanup groups not only benefit their community but also gain public recognition through placement of a roadside sign acknowledging their efforts.
