Keep Ashe Beautiful distributing free tarps Thursday

October 15, 2013

Keep Ashe Beautiful will distribute free tarps at the Baldwin Convenience Center Thursday in an effort to keep roads clear of debris.

“These are to put on you pick-up truck,” said Elaine Graham of KAB.

“If your trash blows off your truck, it’s not only distracting and dangerous to other drivers, it’s also illegal and you can be fined,” Graham said.

Members of KAB will be joined by an N.C. Highway Patrol trooper when they begin distributing 80 eight-foot by 10-foot tarps at 10 a.m. Thursday. The event will run until all tarps are handed out, she said.

A supply of 30-gallon trash bags will also be given out, she said. The tarps and bags were donated by the Glad bag company.
