Commonwealth Cleanup Week, an annual weeklong event implemented by the Energy and Environment Cabinet, runs from March 20-26, and also kicks off the Great American Cleanup, which runs March through May, Solid Waste Coordinator Curtis Ochs announced in a news release.
“Its purpose is to provide Kentucky communities an opportunity to ‘spring clean,’ recycle and help promote personal responsibility across the commonwealth,” Ochs said.
The Spencer County Solid Waste Board recently announced that its Spring Roadside Litter Abatement Pickup will be during the last week of March, the news release said. Solid Waste will provide bags to groups who wish to help “tidy up” the county and “eliminate the litter we see daily,” Ochs said.
Each participating group will receive a form to use to report its accomplishments. Groups are eligible to win one of six $100 prizes to be awarded by random drawing, the news release said.
Spencer County and its waste hauler, Rumpke Consolidated, will also provide a curbside pickup around the middle of May, usually in conjunction with the normal garbage collection day, the news release said.
“We cannot ignore the opportunity to recycle as much of the litter as possible because recycling today’s scrap will help assure a green tomorrow for our future generations,” Ochs said.
