DeKalb County is a beautiful area.

We have three state parks, and people from all over the country come here to witness this county’s natural beauty.

It’s important that we do all we can to keep it this way. We all see litter and waste on the side of the street and highway, and there’s simply no excuse for it. It’s such an easy problem to avoid. Just take responsibility and properly dispose of trash and other waste. Also, Fort Payne has its own recycling center at 406 Logan St. So, please take advantage of it.

Take pride in your home, and don’t let anyone trash it.
