Jessamine County inmates, members of the road department, and others participated in the Litter Abatement Program last week and this week.
The program is held twice yearly, and helps keep the county clean, according to Jessamine County Jailer Frank Hubbard.
"They've really made a difference in how the county looks," Hubbard said.
He added that Harold Witt, District Seven Highway supervisor, was so impressed that he wanted to make Jessamine County an example for Montgomery County.
"He couldn't get over how clean the county looks," Hubbard said.
On Saturday alone, 24 inmates and 13 county road workers picked up 327 bags of trash along Old U.S. 27, Pollard, Mount Lebanon Road, Sulphur Well and Little Hickman.
The program, which began three years ago, is done on two Saturdays during the year.
Environmental Officer Bill Canter said the theme of the program is "Look Before You Throw."
Jessamine County Judge Executive Wm. Neal Cassity heads up the program, which is held at the same time of year as the County-Wide Clean-Up, the Commonwealth Cleanup, and the PRIDE cleanup.
