by Minden Press-Herald

The Town of Sibley is pleased to have been selected as one of the recipients of the 2023 – 2024 Keep Louisiana Beautiful Trash Receptacle Grant Program made possible with funding from the State of Louisiana and the Office of the Lieutenant Governor. The Town received four trash receptacles to place at locations within Sibley. The goal is to significantly reduce litter in our town.

“We are grateful to receive this grant from Keep Louisiana Beautiful. With the new trash receptacles and our annual “Love the Boot” Clean-up Day, we hope our citizens will properly dispose of their litter and continue efforts to keep Sibley clean.” says Sibley Mayor Robert Smart.

According to the 2023 Louisiana Litter Research Study, an estimated $91,409,573 was spent in 2022 by local governments and state agencies on cleanup, prevention, and remediation efforts related to litter and illegal dumping across Louisiana, which is a cost increase of 65 percent since 2010 after adjustment for inflation. Municipalities, cities, and towns bear the highest percentage of litter costs (36.4%).
