Columbia County will be hosting a Spring Clean-Up day as part of the Keep Arkansas Beautiful campaign.

The event will be held Friday, March 31 from 8 a.m. to noon.

Magnolia City Councilman James Jefferson is organizing the event.

"We are doing this as part of the Keep Arkansas Beautiful campaign. That's a program we had utilized for four years. Due to COVID, we did not participate in that program for two years. I'm happy we could get back involved in that and the county was kind of kind to me with some resources, like your grabber, because I want to do bulk items in certain parts of the county," he said Monday during a meeting of the Columbia County Quorum Court.

Anyone interested in volunteering can contact Jefferson at 870-904-4718 to receive eight hours of community service, he said.

"We have a lot of trash, you know, big items like couches televisions and furniture. I spoke with Circuit Judge Ryan Phillips and he's going to support me with more mandatory community service," he said.
