The public is invited to join the City of LaGrange for its monthly litter clean-up event Saturday, January 12th, 8:00-10:00 a.m. The group will meet in the Weathers Honda parking lot, 1808 Vernon Road and clean the area along Vernon Street/West Point Road and Vernon Road.
The city’s December 1st litter cleanup event was canceled because of rainy weather.
The City of LaGrange held its last litter pick-up event November 3rd and uncovered an illegal dumping site in a ravine along E. Bacon Street, just behind Shadowlawn cemetery.
Dozens of people from the community, Youth Council, and City of LaGrange participate in the monthly litter pick-up events.
City Manager Meg Kelsey wanted to send a message to the community that the City of LaGrange is serious about cleaning up litter and rolled out the city’s campaign, “Leaving LaGrange Better Than We Found It.” The City of LaGrange closed non-essential business the morning of April 20th and nearly four hundred employees picked up trash throughout the community.
LaGrange Mayor Jim Thornton, Troup County Commission Chairman Patrick Crews, West Point Mayor Steve Tramell, Hogansville Mayor Bill Stankiewicz, along with Troup County’s Keep Troup Beautiful have joined forces to help clean up the litter in the community.
