Residents invited to help clean up their community
Keep Forsyth County Beautiful welcomes everyone to take part in the Great FoCo Cleanup by helping remove litter from the community’s roadways on Saturday, March 27. The effort is a part of the Keep America Beautiful Great American Cleanup.
Participants, as an organized team of volunteers or as individuals, can pick up supplies at 9 a.m. at one of three drive-through locations:
• Cumming City Hall (100 E. Main Street)
• Coal Mountain Recycling Center (3560 Settingdown Rd.)
• Old Atlanta Recycling Center (3678 Old Atlanta Rd.)
Volunteers will then depart to clean up roadways in the community; masks and social distancing are strongly encouraged.
“This is a great opportunity for everyone to step outside and make a positive impact,” said Forsyth County Manager of Environmental Programs Tammy Wright. “We are always thankful to see the community come together for events such as this to help our county thrive.”
Volunteers are asked to bring their bags of trash back to the pick-up locations before 1 p.m. Volunteers with pickup trucks are also needed following the event to help collect trash from the various clean-up locations.
Pre-registration is required, and participants can learn more detailed information by visiting KeepForsythCountyBeautiful.org
