Keep Slidell Beautiful was recently awarded a Trash Receptacle Grant from Keep Louisiana Beautiful. The trash cans will be placed around Olde Towne Slidell.

The purpose of the Keep Louisiana Beautiful (KLB) Trash Receptacle Mini-Grant Program is to encourage community action in the specific areas of litter abatement and environmental stewardship. This program has been developed to assist Keep America Beautiful affiliates in Louisiana in their efforts to provide attractive, durable and high-quality trash receptacles in public spaces by streamlining the grant application process. KLB will support programs that demonstrate a commitment to community behavioral change and environmental stewardship through strong partnerships with local municipalities and a clear plan for monitoring the program’s impact over time through the litter assessments described within this program.

“We are grateful to Keep America Beautiful and Keep Louisiana Beautiful for providing this grant opportunity and for their continued support of Keep Slidell Beautiful,” said Trey Brownfield, Director of Keep Slidell Beautiful.
