Pack In, Pack Out Program Launched at Floyd Lamb Park
Pack In, Pack Out Program Launched at Floyd Lamb Park

The city of Las Vegas wants people to help keep city parks clean and recycle, so it is launching a pilot program at Floyd Lamb Park at Tule Springs.

When people arrive at the park, they will be given a small blue bag for recycling and a small clear bag for trash. When people leave the park, they will be asked to drop off two bags at a designated area.

Park officials hope the Pack In, Pack Out program will get people to think about reducing how much trash they put into a trash bin and how much they can recycle.

The city's recycling program at parks has been able to hit a 50 percent recycling rate or higher.

Floyd Lamb Park at Tule Springs was chosen as a pilot project because visitors must enter and exit through one access point.
