Conway Corporation partnered with the city of Conway to clean up a dumping site at Cadron Creek near the Faulkner/Conway county line on Friday.
“The city owns some property out there and we own some property out there,” Conway Corp CEO Bret Carroll said, adding that Cadron Creek is a back-up water supply. “We prefer people don’t dump trash out there.”
On Friday the crew — using a roll-off dumpster, green carts, a front-end loader and other equipment — cleared the tributary off the boat access road of mattresses, a TV, two pig carcasses, trash and other debris that filled the dumpster.
Carroll said Conway Corp plans to put up signage and cameras in the area to prevent future dumping.
“It’s a pretty obscure location,” he said, adding that he values the partnership with the city. “[Mayor] Bart Castleberry has been great to work with. We enjoy the relationship we have with government.”
Cleaning up litter is a priority for Castleberry, and he said he appreciates the help from Conway Corporation on that and other issues.
“They’ve been a great partner to the city of Conway,” Castleberry said. “Bret and I have had a good relationship.”
He said some of the other projects the city partnered with Conway Corp on include construction and street repairs, where Conway Corp will complete the utility work before the city makes improvements to the road.
“All of our departments work together, specifically construction and street repairs,” Castleberry said. “Conway Corp has great people. Whenever business and industry come to Conway, Conway Corp is one of the greatest draws and assets.”
