Marshall County Holds Clean Up Litter Event


The Marshall Co. Solid Waste Department along with the City of

Lewisburg Stormwater Department held a county-wide Clean Up

Day event on Saturday, April 15, 2023 to pick up litter along major

thoroughfares and parks around Marshall County.

Elected officials, representatives from industries such as Teledyne, WestRock and Lewisburg Printing joined several volunteers who spent Saturday morning collecting bags of litter from Rock Creek Park and the Lewisburg Industrial Park to roadways and other public areas from Belfast to Chapel Hill. 

With assistance from Waste Management, the crews were able to collect and dispose of over 1,550 lbs of litter. The volunteers were treated to a cookout at Rock Creek Park following the morning workout.
