“Thank you and congratulations to all of our PRIDE volunteers, business and individual sponsors, and Solid Waste staff who helped make this year’s event another successful one,” said Cumberland County Judge-Executive John A. Phelps, Jr.
“This year begins my fifth season and my second term as Cumberland County Judge Executive, and I continue to be amazed at the number of volunteers we had to come forward to work with the Pride Staff for our fifth annual Dale Hollow Cleanup,” Phelps said.
“We have a beautiful community and we need to continue to keep it clean,” Phelps added.
“I encourage everyone to do their part to keep the roads clean now,” echoed Tammie Wilson, PRIDE President/CEO. “Please keep trash inside your car and put it in the garbage can when you get home. If you see litter, please pick it up before another litter bug uses it as a target.”
The Dale Hollow Spring Cleanup is part of the PRIDE Spring Cleanup campaign across 42 counties of southern and eastern Kentucky. The region-wide PRIDE Spring Cleanup is sponsored by Outdoor Venture Corporation, Walmart and Waste Management of Kentucky.
