Spring cleaning will take on a whole new meaning in Boyle County during the week of March 23-29.
Two major events in the local war on litter will occur. One is Commonwealth Cleanup Week, an annual statewide program, and the other is the beginning of a new year-round local litter pickup program called HELP - Health Environment Litter Patrol.
Boyle Countians will be able to participate in the statewide cleanup next week and the local HELP program year-round on a family and neighborhood basis. They can do so by forming neighborhood littler pickup patrols.
"We are using the week of the annual Commonwealth Cleanup as the occasion to begin our own new local HELP program," said Donna Fechter, director of solid waste for Boyle County.
