Keep Durant Clean & Green Wins Award
Keep Durant Clean & Green’s Great American Clean Up efforts have been recognized by Keep Oklahoma Beautiful as a winner in the 2018 Environmental Excellence Competition.
The 2018 Environmental Excellence Awards Celebration was held at the Edmond Conference Center on November 30, 2018. The event celebrates finalists in KOB's Environmental Excellence Competition where the Durant Area Chamber of Commerce won the Great American Cleanup OGE Innovation Award for Keep Durant Clean & Green.
Keep Durant Clean & Green is made up of volunteers around the community hoping to keep the city beautiful year-round for residents as well as visitors. Trash clean up days are held each fall and spring in conjunction with Keep Oklahoma Beautiful’s Great American Clean Up, but it is also the goal of Keep Durant Clean & Green to get local businesses, clubs, organizations and individuals to participate in an ongoing Adopt-An-Area program.
The Keep Durant Clean & Green initiative is spear-headed by Durant Area Chamber of Commerce and includes partnerships with the City of Durant, Choctaw Nation, Southeastern Oklahoma State University, Imagine Durant, Durant Main Street and several more local businesses, organizations and volunteers.
