Volunteers Tackle Litter Along Versailles Road

Volunteers Tackle Litter Along Versailles Road

It's a sad fact- many people drive up and down Lexington roads every day... Leaving garbage and trash behind.
The cold weather isn't stopping a group of volunteers from tackling Lexington's litter problem.

The "Friends of Versailles Road" Committee spent Saturday morning picking up and sweeping away trash along the busy street.

It was the first clean-up project for the group.

Volunteer Paula Singer says, "We happen to be concerned about Versailles Road corridor because this is where we live and work. But we have noticed that this is a problem all over the city of Lexington."

Members say the litter problem is especially bad near some rivers and creeks in the city.

"Last year I participated in the Wolf Run cleanup and I can't tell you how many beer bottles I picked up," says Singer.

'Friends of Versailles Road' plans to keep the momentum going and organize more cleanup projects.

It welcomes new members who are ready to roll up their sleeves and tackle the litter problem.

The group can be reached at 859-255-5349 or through email: friendsofversaillesroad@gmail.com
