Pack In, Pack Out Program Launched at Floyd Lamb Park | Environment
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.
