Catawba County Recognizes Tarp Awareness Week Sept 6-12
Published: August 31, 2020
Tarp Awareness Week, which takes place September 6-12, 2020, reminds residents to reduce roadside litter and increase safety by using tarps to secure waste loads in open vehicles.
“Using a tarp helps prevent the unsightly and unhealthy accumulation of trash along our roadsides,” said Ariel Kanupp, Catawba County Waste Reduction Coordinator/Educator. “Even the smallest amount of trash blown from a moving vehicle adds up. In North Carolina, it costs taxpayers millions of dollars to clean up roadside trash every year.”
Tarp Awareness Week is a community-wide environmental education awareness program created by Keep Catawba County Beautiful, Republic Services and Catawba County Utilities & Engineering. For more information, contact Ariel Kanupp at (828) 465-8217.
