Keep West Feliciana Beautiful has been awarded five trash receptacles through a mini-grant sponsored by Keep America Beautiful and its affiliate Keep Louisiana Beautiful.

Through a comprehensive study, Keep America Beautiful concluded, "Littering rates decrease as the convenience of using a proper receptacle increases."

The purpose of the Trash Receptacle Mini-Grant Program is to encourage community action in the specific areas of litter abatement and environmental stewardship, a news release said. 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.

Three of the trash receptacles have been placed at the West Feliciana Sports Park and two at the West Feliciana Community Service Building on La. 10.
