LANCASTER — Garrard County’s fourth annual Anti-Litter/Beautification Campaign began May 1 and will continue through June 18, ending with the Party on the Square in Lancaster from 7-10 p.m.
The campaign promotes litter clean-up and beautification in Garrard County and encourages personal commitment and community pride.
Individuals or groups can participate by wearing green campaign T-shirts (or just something green) on Mondays or casual Fridays during the campaign. Anti-litter T-shirts are available at Linda’s Custom Sports Apparel in Lancaster.
Other ways individuals or groups can participate include picking up litter, cleaning up a roadside, parking lot or walking trail, planting flowers or trees or beginning to recycle.
For suggestions of roads or specific clean-up areas, call Garrard/Lincoln Solid Waste Director Chris Thomason at (859) 792-3821 or (859) 338-3233. To clean on public property, ask Thomason about free garbage bags and pickup service. Check with Thomason with any questions about disposal of trash and recycling.
Anyone participating in the campaign who is age 6 or older and works or lives in Garrard County can enter the drawing at the Party on the Square. Prizes include $100, a Herrington Lake Marina one-day pontoon boat rental, a one-night stay at a Kentucky State Park lodge, two Belle of Louisville tickets, a Pattie A. Clay Regional Medical Center gift basket and a pair of gifts from the Lancaster Higher Education Center.
