Know of an area in your neighborhood that could use some TLC and want to help improve Lexington’s environment? If so, consider coordinating a Great American Cleanup event.

Through the Great American Cleanup, Keep Lexington Beautiful encourages organizations, and individuals to pick up litter in a neighborhood, park, roadway, greenway or stream.

Last year, Lexington residents collected more than 54 tons of litter and debris.

“Cleanups are a great opportunity to beautify our community,” says Susan Plueger, director of the city’s Division of Environmental Services.
