The Yadkin County Beautification Committee and the Perdue Farms, Inc. office located in Yadkinville partnered in a litter cleanup on April 20 in celebration of Earth Day. The group collected more than 60 bags of trash and recyclables on Progress Lane and a portion of Service Road in Yadkinville.
Brad Stroud with Perdue contacted the Beautification Committee earlier in the year to organize a pick-up event. The company engages associates in environmental projects and takes responsibility in being good environmental stewards.
Crystal Sprague of the Yadkin County Beatification Committee said, “We hope to continue the cleanup annually with Perdue Farms in celebration of Earth Day and hope that other local businesses will join us. We encourage more people to take responsible action to prevent and cleanup litter.”
