The Hall County Government Spring Cleaning Project, postponed from April 1 by inclement weather, has been rescheduled for April 22.

The one-day event dedicated to picking up litter along county roadways is in response to elected officials’ concerns.

“There are so many areas of the county that are kept pristine, but I still receive complaints from constituents regarding litter on a number of area roads,” Commissioner Jeff Stowe said. “I wanted to make sure we responded to those complaints and addressed the litter issue in our area.”

Hall County employees have volunteered to pick up trash along the roads that have been identified as high-litter areas. Once the various roadways are clean, participants will bring their filled trash bags back to the county landfill, where they will be weighed.

“We want to set an example as a leader in the community for litter pick-up and prevention, and hopefully this effort will be able to quantify-in pounds-the need for litter cleanup, prevention and education throughout the area,” Stowe said.

The project is a part of a monthlong emphasis of litter prevention and clean up by Keep Hall Beautiful in conjunction with Earth Day April 24 and the Great American Clean-Up.
