The second annual Keep Mercer Clean Campaign kicks off today and Mercer County is leading the charge with cleanup across the area.
Mercer County Commissioner Greg Puckett says great strides have been made over the past year and he plans on keeping the ball rolling.
“We really need to step up and do better and you know for identifying these open dumps, we’re going to clean them up as much as possible and try to nullify the trash that we see on our roadways it’s going to really help us out in the long term,” Puckett said.
The public is encouraged to come and help cleanup on April 5th, 2016 around Courthouse Road, as well as April 2nd, 2016, in Bluewell.
