Lake Havasu City’s beaches are relatively clean thanks to efforts by the Lake Havasu Marine Association and partnering organizations, and their diligence hasn’t been unappreciated.
For the past 10 years, the Marine Association has conducted its “trash bag program, installing posts at locations along Havasu’s coast and stocking them with thousands of trash bags. This year, Republic Waste Services awarded the Marine Association $15,000 in grants to continue its efforts.
Republic Services General Manager Matt Kross says the grant represents a larger contribution to its long-term community partnership with Havasu.
“We wanted to help our community partners,” Kross said. “Our company really likes what the Marine Association has been doing and its commitment to the Lake. We know that Lake Havasu is the reason we exist, and we appreciate what the Marine Association has been doing to protect it.”
