Drax Biomass worked with the Keep Morehouse Beautiful initiative in late March to clean up the front campus of the Morehouse Elementary School—not far from the Drax Biomass Morehouse pelleting operation. The community project included pressure washing the front of the school, removing dead and overgrown shrubs, pruning shrubs and clearing drainage which is filled with leaves. Dumpsters were being provided by the Morehouse Solid Waste Department and additional labor provided by the Morehouse Parish Sheriff’s Dept.

“Drax Biomass strives to promote positive change in our communities by focusing in four main areas—education, the underserved or at-risk population, economic development and environmental stewardship. We also try to give our employees opportunities to volunteer. So this project in Morehouse Parish at the former junior high school was a great fit for us and a significant need,” says Annmarie Sartor, Drax Biomass Communications Officer.

Keep Morehouse Beautiful (KMB) is a certified affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, strives to create and promote pride in Morehouse Parish in the interest of economic development and environmental respect. KMB is composed entirely of volunteers with no committed source of income, and its projects are made possible by generous donations, grants and partnerships.
