PRIDE Clean Up Month continues through May 1

By Dan Mosley, Harlan Co. Judge-Executive

April is PRIDE spring cleanup across eastern Kentucky!

This event wasn’t able to be held last year due to the pandemic, so we’re going all in this year to get our county as clean as possible by providing numerous ways for citizens to discard unwanted items and help rid our communities of litter.

Below is the remaining schedule and contact folks for each specific area in the county for the next couple of weeks.

Roll-off boxes will be available in the designated areas. Inmate work crews will be assisting with litter pickup at different times throughout the month county wide, thanks to Jailer BJ Burkhart for providing this service.
