Litter Survey Results In

The results of last week's litter survey conducted by Keep Nacogdoches Beautiful with the help of community leaders are in. The news is encouraging.

The scale used for the survey is one, for no litter to four, almost a dumpsite. The community overall rated 1.64, down slightly from last year. The county received a 1.70 rating and the city got 1.5.

The survey determines the effectiveness of litter prevention programs, raises community awareness and identifies clean-up sites.

All of East Texas will get a sprucing up this week. Saturday is the 'Don't Mess With Texas Trash Off' in Nacogdoches. The event starts at 9:00 a.m. at the C.L. Simon Recreation Center. In Lufkin there are five gathering points. Contact Angelina Beautiful Clean for more information at 632-5326.
