City of LaGrange to Hold Monthly Litter Cleanup Saturday, February 8th, Community Partner is LaGrange Daily News
LaGrange, Ga. February 6, 2020 – The City of LaGrange is holding its next monthly litter cleanup event this Saturday, February 8th, 8-10 a.m. in the Piggly Wiggly parking lot, 505 South Greenwood Street in LaGrange.
Volunteers pick up litter at the city’s January cleanup
The city is proud to partner with the LaGrange Daily News.
City employees and community volunteers will be picking up litter along South Greenwood Street.
The city provides vests, trash bags and gloves.
City Manager Meg Kelsey began this litter cleanup campaign in April 2018 hoping to send a message to the community that the City of LaGrange is serious about cleaning up our city. Kelsey closed down the government and hundreds of employees picked up litter throughout the city.
This initial event was so successful the city decided to begin hosting monthly litter pickups.
Here is the remaining schedule for 2020:
FEBRUARY – Saturday, February 8th, 8-10 a.m. at Piggly Wiggly parking lot, 505 Greenwood Street
MARCH – Saturday, March 7th, 8-10 a.m. in Jones Street Park (LaGrange College, Partner)
APRIL – Friday, April 24th, 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. City employees to pick up trash throughout the community
These events are always family-friendly, free and open to the public.
