🗞 You can't find The Memphis Flyer at Kroger stores anymore, so we wanted to make sure you know where you CAN find the paper. There’s a map, and a list (organized by ZIP), of our 500+ pickup spots: locations.memphisflyer.com. You can access this list anytime right at the top of the Flyer's homepage [link is in our bio].
Keep reading & please keep (or start!) supporting local journalism. We couldn't do this without our community, and we're grateful to you.
This sad scene was discovered at Cedars of Lebanon State Forest in October. It's all cleaned up now, but this sight is all too common.
Please have respect for public places – and for yourself – by refraining from dumping trash anywhere but at approved sites.
If you see someone littering in Cedars of Lebanon State Forest, please call the local forest office at (615) 443-2768 or call the state litter hotline at 877-8Litter.
Ways to keep Tennessee beautiful:
- Choose not to litter. Make the commitment now to join with thousands of other Americans to not be a litter-bug. - Educate friends and family on the litter laws in Tennessee.
- Remind others not to litter and why. - Get a litter bag or portable ash receptacles to share.
- Volunteer in your community to help prevent and cleanup litter—from cigarette butts to illegal dumps. Find a Keep America Beautiful affiliate in your community.
Plastic bags require a special sorting and processing machine which not every recycling plant has. This means that a lot of bags easily make their way to landfills and to oceans, where they will break down in tiny pieces and take up to 1,000 years to fully degrade.
