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.

Christmas Tree at the Library

Keep Pickens Beautiful would like to say “Thank you” to the students at Harmony Elementary School who participated in making decorations for the KPB Christmas tree.  The tree is part of the Festival of Trees held yearly at the Pickens County Library.  Susan Anderson, their teacher, had the children use their imaginations to create the ornaments by recycling everyday items such as paper, corks, milk cartons, light bulbs.  The students came up with great ways to recycle everyday items we might call trash into unique tree ornaments.  Please take time out of your busy schedule to visit the library during regular hours and view all the beautifully decorated trees.  Keep Pickens Beautiful would like to invite you to make a New Year’s resolution to start recycling in your home or workplace in 2019.  If you need help or more information about recycling please call the KPB office at 706-253-3600, or visit our web page at keeppickensbeautiful.org.
