Second Annual Spring Pride Clean-up in Columbia, KY is Underway

List of volunteer groups is long; others asked to join the effort; 3 dumpsters divided between Fairgrounds and Utilities Building on Tutt Street.
Officially, the 2006 PRIDE Spring Clean-up begins this week, but last week a number of volunteer groups went to work on the project, and enthusiasm for the project is running high.

Dumpsters are out in Columbia this week and next week in conjunction with the 2006 Spring Pride Clean-up.

This year's effort is a major thrust in Mayor Patrick R. Bell's efforts to have a cleaner, healthier city.

For the second year in a row, City Clerk Carolyn Edwards will coordinate the city's efforts. Her telephone number at City Hall is 270-384-2501.

The city has dumpsters are in place with two at the Fairgrounds and one on Tutt Street. They are open this week, April 17-21 and next week, April 24-28.

On April 20-22 the City will have a metal recycling in conjunction with the the Adair Fiscal Court. Metal appliances can be taken to the Transfer Station on those days.

Saturday, April 22, the City of Columbia will conduct a Roadside Cleanup from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., and Carolyn Edwards, Columbia City Clerk, asks volunteers to coordinate efforts with her office.

Several groups have already volunteered to do Roadside Cleanup this year:

Additional churches, private citizens, civic clubs, businesses, lone wolves, and motley crews volunteering to help with the drive will be added as we are notified by 2006 Pride Coordinator Carolyn Edwards.
