Stamford-based Keep America Beautiful: Remember to properly dispose of wipes, gloves, masks
April 8, 2020
STAMFORD — Keep America Beautiful, a national nonprofit organization based in Stamford, issued an urgent call this week by asking all Americans to properly dispose of cleaning supplies and personal protective equipment (PPE), including used sanitizing wipes, masks and plastic gloves, during the coronavirus crisis.
These items belong in the trash and not on the ground, the organization stressed.
“We have been hearing from more and more people who are seeing wipes, gloves, and other related items on streets and walking trails, or being left behind near supermarkets and pharmacies,” Keep America Beautiful president and CEO Helen Lowman said.
