Knock Out Litter Program
Knock Out Litter is the slogan for the city’s award-winning litter control program, developed to address a top priority identified by the Hot Springs Board of Directors. The key components of this successful program include:
Full-time litter crew targeting major roadways throughout Hot Springs.
Educational programs to build community awareness and elicit public support.
Intensified enforcement of existing litter laws.
You can help by using the Sanitation Department services to dispose of litter, participate in clean-ups, and by reporting those who litter.
To report litterers, call the city’s 24-hour action line, 321-6808, with the following information: make, model, color and license plate; location; and type of littering. A courtesy letter will be sent by the Police Department, reminding the individual of current litter laws and asking them to help keep Hot Springs beautiful.
Area Clean-ups and Educational Presentations
Check the local news media for information on upcoming neighborhood clean-ups and larger events, such as the Sanitation Department’s annual Spring Fling Citywide Clean-Up and the Trash Bash, which is sponsored by Trash Bash, Inc. The Hot Springs/Garland County Beautification Commission also makes educational presentations to schools and civic groups.
