City of Conway Awarded PalmettoPride Grant

Conway, SC – The City of Conway has been awarded $5,000 by PalmettoPride to install around 25 new, permanent trash receptacles and recycling containers at Collins Park.

Parks, Recreation and Tourism Director Addison Jarrell says he’s excited about what the partnership means for the City of Conway.

“The Parks, Recreation and Tourism Department is excited to have this opportunity to partner with PalmettoPride to provide a more permanent solution to both trash and recyclables at Collins Park,” said Jarrell. “When we have the opportunity to utilize grant funding to add to the beauty and usefulness of one of our local facilities, it’s a great day.”

These receptacles will replace rolling carts and provide easier access to visitors of the park.

The added recycling containers will also help to reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills.

The new receptacles will be installed in Collins Park the next few weeks.

The City of Conway has made a conscious effort over the last few months to reduce the amount of waste by adding incentive programs for businesses that recycle, offering a free recycling program to all of its residents, and pushing community clean-up events.

The third Thursday of each month, members of the community meet with members of Conway City Staff and work together to keep Conway clean. The City of Conway will host its next 2018 Community Clean-Up Day this Thursday afternoon from 4:00 – 5:30. This is the second event of the year.

If you want to get involved in keeping our waterways, parks, and roadsides beautiful and litter free, we’d love to see you at one of our events. You can also contact the Keep Horry County Beautiful Committee at or (843) 915-7893.

The City of Conway would like to thank our local and state delegation members for making opportunities like this possible.
