Keep Ascension Beautiful has been selected as a recipient of the 2022-23 Healthy Communities Grant by Keep Louisiana Beautiful, the State’s foremost organization dealing with anti-litter and community improvement. They have received the award in the amount of $8,000 to be used to aid in the construction of a new recycling center on the West Bank of Ascension Parish.
As Ascension Parish has and continues to grow, population growth on the East Bank has outpaced that of the West Bank. With an established Recycling Center on the East Bank averaging seventy-four (74) visitors per day, the need for the same service on the West bank is becoming more and more evident.
These funds will give residents in our West Bank communities the opportunity to participate in this new program. A West Bank Recycling Center is just one part of that effort but is a major part of expanding Keep Ascension Beautiful. It will create new opportunities to educate the public, promote awareness and cooperation.
“While we become more and more conscious of our impact on the environment, conservation and recycling efforts become that much more important. This grant is going to help us to provide our
residents with the facilities to play an active role in keeping the beauty that surrounds us just that, beautiful.” – Clint Cointment
