Clean Sweep

Nominate most littered road in county for KPB’s Operation Clean Sweep

Sheriff Donnie Craig is a great ally in KPB’s efforts to beautify Pickens County. He allows inmates from the County Detention Center to pick up litter. I know everyone has seen these men gathering litter from our roads and highways. We are grateful to those who volunteer for this duty and to Sheriff Craig for allowing this effort and for providing a Deputy to supervise the clean-up.
“Operation Clean Sweep” is a new effort to go along with these ongoing efforts to keep our roads free from litter. If you have a road to submit for Operation Clean Sweep, contact KPB byphone or by Email. You can also leave a post on our Facebook page to nominate a road.  KPB will review the nominations and pick a “winner” to be the object of a crew of volunteers to pick up litter.
The deadline for nominations will be April 8th at Noon. If weather permits, we will “Clean Sweep” the chosen road on Saturday April 16th. Our plan will be for all volunteers to meet at the First Baptist Church parking lot at noon where we will carpool to the site. It is expected that with travel time and clean-up, “Operation Clean Sweep” should last approximately two to three hours. Depending on interest from the community we may have to limit the number of volunteers that we can have on the side of the chosen roadway.
We look forward to your nominations and your participation in “Operation Clean Sweep”. Our phone number is 706-253-3600 and our email ID is: This email address is being protected from spambots.
