Alabama People Against A Littered State (ALPALS) is a statewide organization dedicated to making our state more beautiful by sponsoring programs focused on cleaning up litter in Alabama's streets, streams, campuses, and coastlines.
Through education and annual anti-littering campaigns ALPALS has partnered with Alabama counties, cities, communities, schools, and other organizations to enhance the Alabama environment by preventing littering and picking up litter. Since 1987, Alabama PALS and our valued partners have created, maintained and implemented successful statewide litter prevention programs that have improved and beautified each and every corner of our great state.
As part of the caring community, ALPALS invites you, your county, municipality, civic group, volunteers, neighborhoods, schools, church groups and all groups and individuals to join in keeping Alabama beautiful. Preventing litter, participating in one or all of the many statewide programs offered through the PALS statewide organization, and becoming a member of ALPALS are all ways your group can make a difference. The strength and success of Alabama PALS comes through the support, dedication and involvement of our thousands of statewide volunteers, and we truly believe that there is nothing so special and dedicated as the "Heart of a Volunteer."
