Supervisors renew litter cleanup campaign

County Offers Citizens and Organizations Prizes and Recognition for Adopting-A-Spot and
Helping Clean Up the County

The Pulaski County Board of Supervisors is renewing its litter clean-up campaign, asking civic groups, churches, businesses and individuals to participate in a year-long Adopt-A-Spot Campaign to assist in keeping our county beautiful by picking up trash and litter.
A county wide clean-up on Saturday, April 9, 2022, will kick off the campaign. Supervisors will be giving
out bags, gloves, vests, etc. for use in pick up from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a. m.

Sites are listed below:
Ingles District Snowville Ruritan, 4867 Lead Mine Road, Hiwassee
Walmart, 5225 Alexander Road, Dublin
Cloyd District Walmart, 7373 Peppers Ferry Boulevard, Fairlawn
Draper District Draper Park, 3165 Old Greenbrier Road, Draper
Massie District Magic Mart Plaza, 1000 Memorial Drive, Pulaski
Robinson District Loving Field, Loving Field Road, Pulaski

The process is simple. Bags of trash can be left on the road where picked up or put out with weekly trash
collection for PSA to pick up. Participants are requested to post their picture along with trash bags and
items picked up to social media on the Clean Community Facebook page, using the hashtag
#cleancommunitycouncil, #cleanup, #pulaskicountyis to help us account for results. Results are also
requested to be emailed to Cheryl Farris cfarris@pulaskicounty.org to be counted. Certificates will be
awarded to all who participate and turn in their contact information.

Groups and individuals will be offered the opportunity to Adopt-A-Spot and keep that spot, road,
neighborhood, etc. clean for a year. Those who volunteer to participate will receive an Adopt-A-Spot sign
to put up at their spot or area with their name or logo. At the end of the campaign, there will be a 1st, 2nd,
and 3rd prize of $750.00, $500.00, and $250.00 awarded to those who have collected the greatest amount
of trash. Certificates of appreciation will also be presented to all individuals and/or groups that participate
and submit contact information. If individuals are tracking their community service, they can submit hours
to be listed on their personalized certificate. Adopt- A- Spots will be renewed on an annual basis.

For those who participated last year, please consider picking up your spot if you have not done so recently.
Do not forget to let us know the number of bags and items you have collected so we can give you credit
and your certificate. Please email your totals and results for 2021 to Cheryl Farris cfarris@pulaskicounty.org or call Mrs. Farris at (540) 980-7705 to be counted. The deadline for notification for the past year is Friday, April 8, 2022. Also, please confirm whether you will or will not keep your spot for 2022. Participants are requested to post pictures along with bags and items picked up to social media.

Participants in 2021 will be recognized with awards given at the Board of Supervisors meeting on Monday,
April 25, 2022, at 7 p.m.

Pulaski County will provide bags, gloves, and vests to groups for use at any time. These will be available
