Social Circle to host bi-annual cleanup

The Social Circle Better Hometown program will be hosting its fourth city-wide cleanup day this Saturday.

The city holds city-wide cleanups twice a year — one in spring and another in the fall — as part of Keep Walton County Beautiful. This spring cleaning comes on the Saturday before Georgia Cities Week, which takes place next week.

Mike Miller, manager of the Social Circle Better Hometown, said that the beautification efforts were important for garnering citizen involvement in their town.

The cleanup invites individuals, organizations, churches, businesses and anyone else interested to attend to help clean up ‘the best little town in Georgia.’

According to Miller, many groups, such as the Boys and Girls Club and the Boy Scouts of America have already adopted stretches of roads within the city and will be tending to them. Miller said that anyone who is not part of these groups will be assigned to one of these organizations, or will placed in charge of non-adopted areas of the roads.

Participants will be provided with trash bags and other necessary cleaning supplies but are encouraged to bring their own gloves.

The cleanup will begin at 8 a.m., and according to Miller, usually runs until 11 a.m. Participants are to meet at the Social Circle Visitors Center, located at 165 East Hightower Trail in downtown Social Circle. A breakfast of sausage biscuits and coffee will be served before the cleanups begin.
