Clean Up Cherokee County and Weiss Lake is Well Underway

The County wide cleanup effort got underway in fine style on Saturday from the State Boat Ramp on highway 9 with Weiss Lake Improvement Association, Alabama Power ROR, Lions Club Leos, The Sheriff’s Department, and Volunteers taking to roadways and waterways to remove trash that had been thrown out or blown out of boats and other vehicles.

One person brought a boat to the dumpster area, a couple of volunteers picked up trash along county road 44 and would up with a truck load in just a small area. There were some bringing unwanted mattresses, and others cleaning out their shed and garage with junk to be hauled away.

The County wide clean up was officially declared by the Cherokee County Commission to run from April 27th to May 4th. The Centre City Council likewise declared April 29th through May 4th as Clean Up Centre week. During this time county residents can take their unwanted junk to the dumpster on the causeway and it will be hauled away. The residents of Centre can put their waste items out by their trash cans this week on the normal trash pickup day and a second truck will come by and haul away the junk. City and County officials agree this is better than having it dumped along county roads.

For those who want to form a group and clean up their neighborhood, trash bags are available at the Centre City Hall.

All Cherokee County Residents are urged to participate in cleaning up our beautiful area.
