Statewide clean-up campaign continues through April

The 2021 statewide Don’t Drop It On Alabama Spring Cleanup will be held the entire month of April.

The cleanup is held annually and coordinated by Alabama People Against a Littered State, which also coordinates and implements the Alabama Coastal Cleanup, the Alabama Clean Campus Program, the Adopt A Mile program and Adopt A Stream program statewide.

Each of these efforts are made possible through partnerships with business and industries, state associations and state agencies that are committed to making Alabama a leader in environmental volunteerism and awareness.

The Don’t Drop It On Alabama Spring Cleanup is offered to all 67 Alabama counties and statewide volunteer groups.

PALS has partnered with Coca-Cola United as the title sponsor for the 2021 cleanup effort. This partnership has enabled PALS to further incorporate the recycling of plastic bottles and aluminum cans into the annual cleanup effort.

“The Coca-Cola System is proud of our role as the title sponsor of the statewide 2021 Don’t Drop It on Alabama Spring Cleanup,” said Andy Britton, director of public affairs and communications for Coca-Cola. “We are especially pleased with our annual partnership with Alabama PALS as we all move forward toward our goal of a world without waste.” 

The 2021 Don’t Drop It On Alabama Spring Cleanup is also made possible through PALS’ Sustaining Partners: ALDOT, ALFA, Alabama Farmer’s Cooperative, Vulcan Materials Company, Honda Manufacturing of Alabama, the Association of County Commissions of Alabama and The Poarch Band of Creek Indians. 

PALS distributed approximately 175,000 bags statewide for the 2021 cleanup, as well as all materials and supplies to all participating cities, counties and volunteer groups. Volunteers interested in participating are encouraged to contact the local coordinator to join an existing cleanup or to establish their own local cleanup within their respective communities.
