Anti- Litter committee

Posted on Wednesday, July 11, 2018 at 8:48 am

“I envision a day at the fairgrounds,” said Morgan Quicke, the Richmond County Administrator about a possible future with the Anti-Litter Committee. “A day where you have a meet- up day of 7:30 or 8 a.m. and your teams come, and they look at it as a team event. They bring team shirts, with words that say something like, ‘Rotary Club Trash Pick-up Team,’ have numbers on the back. Get them together in the morning. The committee has identified maybe fifteen different sections of road with a team assigned to each one, everyone goes on out and cleans up their spot from nine to eleven. They meet back at the fairgrounds with our big grills out there making hotdogs and hamburgers, chips, drinks, a DJ, music, have a spot over in the corner where the teams pile up the trash they’ve collected so we can see how much trash they’ve got.”
Richmond County’s own Anti-Litter Committee begins this month, at this time with four members out of seven. Those members include Lowery Becker from District 2, John Lewis from District 4, Rich Taylor from District 5, and Tayloe Emery as one of two at-large members. Quicke hopes to fill their ranks this month, with their first official meeting on August 14.
