Participants in Hammond’s annual Leaders Against Litter campaign gathered in the City Council Chambers on Friday, March 23, to pledge their assistance in the statewide campaign to reduce litter on roadsides.
All who were part of Leaders Against Litter were asked to affix their names to a large sign indicating their commitment to play a leading role in the effort to end the proliferation of trash and debris along thoroughfares. Leaders Against Litter is sponsored by Keep Louisiana Beautiful in cooperation with the office of Lt. Gov. Billy Nungesser. Keep Hammond Beautiful, an affiliate of Keep Louisiana Beautiful and Keep America Beautiful, hosted the local effort.
