Huntington Launches Waste Support Program | New
HUNTINGTON – To reduce waste, the town of Huntington has launched a waste support program.
Part of the funding for the program is provided by the 150th Anniversary Fund. The cost covers 200 litter sticks, 250 pairs of General Building Supply gloves and 10,000 garbage bags, according to a press release.
The program follows other local cleanup initiatives from groups like My Huntington, the Fourpole Creek Watershed Association, neighborhood associations and churches.
The Waste Support Program aims to be a collaborative effort. Businesses, civic groups, neighborhood associations and faith communities can register to host cleanups by sending a date and time to [email protected]
Two community cleanings per week will be permitted as part of the program. The public works department will transport waste from a designated area free of charge. The city will provide the volunteers with the materials needed for the clean-ups.
The first neighborhood association to participate in the program was the Gallaher Village Neighborhood Association with a cleanup on Saturday.
“Knowing that the Town of Huntington is providing supplies and resources will hopefully motivate various community groups to take action and keep our neighborhoods clean during our 150th anniversary and beyond,” said Kimberly Perry Williamson, President from the Gallaher Village Neighborhood Association, in a press release.
