The public is invited to a “Toss and Eat City Clean Up” event hosted by the Newport City Beautiful Commission and Keep Arkansas Beautiful on Saturday, April 24, at Village Mall.
The event will be held from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Everyone is asked to walk through their neighborhoods and collect as much garbage as they can find, such as bottles, cans, paper, plastic, etc.
Please do not bag wood, rock, tires or batteries. Fill as many bags as possible and bring them to Village Mall between 8 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. and “toss” them into the garbage truck. Once the trash is tossed, grab a hot dog at the M&P Grill that will be on site and register to win prizes donated by local businesses. Drawings will be held at 12:45 p.m. and those participating do not have to be present to win. This event is for all ages.
