Pike Road hosts 5th annual Spring Clean Up
PIKE ROAD, AL (WSFA) - The Town of Pike Road is cleaning up! It's hosting its 5th annual Spring Clean Up.
Groups of volunteers are out every day this week including students from elementary to college age, town officials, military members, churches. Pike Road officials encourage even those who haven't officially signed up for a specific day or location to just spend a few minutes this week collecting litter.
"We are blessed with a beautiful natural setting that has drawn people to live and play in the Pike Road area for generations, and we are committed to preserving that beauty," said Pike Road Mayor Gordon Stone. "Last year's tremendous turnout was an example of how the people of Pike Road come together for the betterment of their town. We hope to have even more civic organizations and neighborhoods join in our efforts this year, as we all work together to keep our roadsides and open spaces clean and safe for everyone to enjoy."
The Spring Clean UP is a partnership between the state-wide group "Alabama People Against a Littered State", known as PALS, and Pike Road's Enhance initiative.
Last year PALS week-long clean-up effort removed more than 365 tons of litter from roadsides and communities around the state.
