U.S. 23 cleanup announced from South Shore to Catlettsburg

Mar. 31, 2013 @ 12:08 PM

CATLETTSBURG, Ky — Spring means warmer temperatures and blooming flowers.  Spring also signifies "Spring Cleaning", as in the Ashland Alliance U. S. 23 Cleanup.  This year's sweep of trash along the Country Music Highway from South Shore to Catlettsburg is set for 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 11.

Volunteers are needed to pick up debris and trash along the 50 mile stretch of roadway in Boyd and Greenup counties during the annual clean-up. .

"We are trying to educate our youth as well as our entire region on the issue of keeping our area clean for this generation as well as future
generations.   The individuals that work this clean-up see firsthand
what happens when people litter.  Our hope is they go back to their families, schools, and jobs and educate people on not littering," stated Ashland Alliance staff.
