Cox Media Group (CMG) Tulsa, Okla., including Fox affiliate KOKI-TV, myNetworkTV affiliate KMYT, KRAV-FM, KWEN-FM and KRMG-AM, continued their award-winning environmental sustainability initiative by collecting more than 2,000 pounds of trash from the banks of the Arkansas River on October 12.

More than 75 employees and volunteers served as the environmental clean-up crew. Early-season flooding deposited more debris onto the river’s edges than is typical, making clean-up efforts especially important to prevent garbage from moving down stream.

“We pulled out mattresses, ladders, tires – you name it,” said CMG-Tulsa Market Vice President Cathy Gunther. “We collected more than 2,200 pounds of trash that is now headed to a landfill instead of polluting our streams and public parks.”
