Litter Awareness Month April 2022
April is National Litter Awareness Month which means that it’s officially time for spring cleaning to begin. Discover Columbus and the Town of Columbus are planning a month-long event to help bring attention to the “dirty” topic of litter.
Columbus Proud is designed to raise awareness about litter while at the same time helping people in the community get their neighborhoods and public areas squared away after a long winter. This month-long event will begin the first weekend of April, Saturday April 2nd, 2022.
