Eastern Utah garbage trucks sporting ads for anti-underage drinking campaign

November 29, 2011

ROOSEVELT, Utah Garbage trucks in eastern Utah are urging parents to keep their kids from getting “trashed” in a new ad campaign against underage drinking.

K&K Sanitation has wrapped seven of its Duchesne and Uintah county garbage trucks with anti-alcohol messages from ParentsEmpowered.org.

The Deseret News reports (http://bit.ly/uupHZz ) the banners were funded through a grant from the state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control. The family-owned sanitation company is displaying the ads for free.

Similar ads first appeared on garbage trucks in Salt Lake County in 2009.

A 2011 survey shows that 9.1 percent of northeastern Utah students reported alcohol use in the past 30 days. That number was above the state average of 8.6 percent.
