Doris Wigington City Park Extension

Keep Pickens Beautiful has been working in the City park extension located off Lumber Company Road. KPB has purchased a Cabana (pictured) and done grounds work around the building. New recycle and trash containers have been put in place for the convenience of those who wish to have a picnic in the park.

The park is located at the trail head of a walking path that is a loop about 2 ½ miles long. It is scenic and very lovely peaceful place, until the local train passes through. Take a picnic lunch and check it out.

GREAT AMERICAN CLEANUP

Keep Pickens Beautiful would like to say “Thank You” to all who took part in cleaning up our beautiful County.  Special thanks to 19 Adopt A Road Volunteers who reported picking up:

83 bags of trash from 35 miles of roadways and volunteered 66 hours of their time in April.

We are receiving reports that a good amount of the litter is from contract builders in our area.

The Recycle Center reported that they collected 561 tires during the annual tire amnesty.

KPB also had a new group of folks, Talking Rock Sabbath Chapel, volunteer to pick up West Price Creek Road.

If you would like to be part of the solution to the problem of littering, call us at 706-253-3600.  We can get you started today with keeping our County clean. Visit our web site at keepppickensbeautiful.org. for more information.
