Clean Up Day
Marlboro County had a very successful Cleanup Event this spring, with more than 300 community volunteers picking up trash in areas throughout the county. All totaled, approximately two and a half tons of trash were collected, along with 1,005 tires.
Unlike in previous years, when there was one day designated for the cleanup, this year the last week in March was designated as Cleanup Week. This allowed participants to choose the days and times that worked best for them, with county staff coordinating the pickup of the trash collected.
The week culminated on Saturday, April 1, with an event at Lindsay Park.
Officials plan to have another Cleanup Event in the fall.
