TO PROCLAIM APRIL 22, 2006, AS THE GREAT AMERICAN CLEANUP OF SOUTH CAROLINA AND ENCOURAGE ALL SOUTH CAROLINIANS TO RECOGNIZE THE MANY CONTRIBUTIONS OF A CLEAN AND BEAUTIFUL STATE TO AN IMPROVED QUALITY OF LIFE.
Whereas, celebrating it's twenty-first anniversary, the Keep America Beautiful Great American Cleanup takes place annually from March through May; and
Whereas, teams of volunteers will participate in community cleanups, including parks, parking lots, neighborhoods, beaches, river fronts, business districts, and school yards across the Palmetto State during our State's Great American Cleanup day; and
Whereas, during last year's Great American Cleanup of South Carolina, about eighteen thousand volunteers cleaned up more than fifteen thousand tons of trash, recycled approximately twenty-two thousand tires, cleaned four hundred acres of parks, twenty-two thousand miles of roadways, and over one thousand miles of waterfront; and
Whereas, working together to clean and beautify our State helps build pride in communities, create cleaner environments, foster economic development, and bring awareness to the problem of litter. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly hereby proclaim April 22, 2006, as the Great American Cleanup of South Carolina and encourage all South Carolinians to recognize the many contributions of a clean and beautiful state to an improved quality of life.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to PalmettoPride.
