Keep Pickens Beautiful awards the Green Thumb Award to Peggy Petty for the beautiful gardens, pathways and pond. Ms. Peggy maintains her unusual landscaping and gardens on her 2 acre plot.

The vegetable garden shows the functionality of the land. Ms. Petty attributes this beautifully landscaped property to her late husband, Kenneth Petty.  Ms. Petty was born and raised right here at Grandview Lake and enjoys maintaining her 2 acres of heaven.  If you would like to nominate someone for the Green Thumb Award, contact our office at 706-253-3600.

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.

If you would like to join KPB and help keep our county clean and beautiful, call our office at 706-253-3600, or visit our web page at www.keeppickensbeautiful.org, for more information.

KPB is celebrating 30 years of Keeping Pickens Beautiful.

TIRE AMNESTY MONTH OF APRIL FOR PICKENS COUNTY RESIDENTS

Pickens County residents only may take four (4) scrap passenger size tires, maximum per family, off the rims, to the Pickens County Recycle Center at 3141 Camp Road, Jasper  and 9720 Cove Road, Marble Hill, during the month of April as part of the Great American Clean.

Keep Pickens Beautiful would like to remind you that mosquito breeding season is upon us and with it brings the West Nile Virus and the possibility of other viruses.  KPB urges all of our county residents to dispose of any tires you have lying around.  Let’s eliminate the mosquito breeding places clean up our county and protect our environment.

The Great American Cleanup is like a puzzle, if everyone does a small part in the clean up the whole big job will be completed, piece by piece.

If you would like to know how you can have a part in the Great American Cleanup please call our office at 706-253-3600 for more information.
