City-wide cleanup, "flash trail" set for Saturday
The Keep Bryant Beautiful campaign will host City Wide Cleanup and Dumpster Days on Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon.
The KBB will be at the Bryant exits from the interstate during the cleanup.
Dumpsters will be placed at First Southern Baptist Church on Reynolds Road; First Pentecostal Church on Arkansas 5; First United Methodist Church on Reynolds Road; and Central Arkansas Church of Christ on Arkansas 5.
The first Bryant Flash Trail will be from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. It will be hosted by Hill Farm Elementary School.
Mary Armstrong, a math facilitator at Hill Farm, requested this trail be built. Teachers, parents, students, boy scouts, city employees, and volunteers from the community will meet to create a new trail trail on the old Hill Farm.
The city will bring a wood chipper and operators in order to help make as much mulch as possible on this day to cover the new trail, according to a press release from the city.
The city is inviting residents of Bryant to help by bringing any leftover storm debris or spring clippings on this day to the designated trail area. Anyone caught bringing debris of any kind outside of this day will be charged for dumping on school property, according to the press release.
Volunteers are also asked to bring hoes, shovels, rakes, limb snippings, wheel barrows, or whatever they have to contribute to the project.
Hill Farm Elementary has already received a grant to complete an outdoor classroom, walkway to the classroom, and a pond on the school grounds, according to the press release.
