The Benton High School Choir Received a $500 check from the District for helping to create the "What Does the Fox Say" with Smarty video.
The Saline County Regional Solid Waste Management District is proud to announce a new organization formed as part of the Economic Development Council’s initiative to improve the Quality of Life in Saline County; to be known as Saline Green.
Saline Green is made up of government and business leaders whose primary goal is to provide leadership and information in sustainability programs that will benefit all of the residents within Saline County.
Their Mission Statement: Develop and implement a cooperative county wide sustainability initiative to increase awareness and participation in energy efficiency programs, recycling opportunities and other green initiatives resulting in measurable improvements in the social, economic and environmental wellbeing of Saline County.
One of the expected benefits will be for Saline Green to act as an umbrella organization for the various community programs like Keep Bryant Beautiful (KBB), Benton Matters and the soon to be formed Labor for Your Neighbor (L4YN-Haskell) to coordinate county wide activities on recognized days such as Arbor Day and Keep America Beautiful week.
SCRSWMD welcomes Saline Green and we hope you will show them the support through your continued volunteer efforts on cleanup days!
