Laurens County, South Carolina – Throughout the month of April, Laurens County residents are coming together to celebrate Earth Day by participating in various community cleanups across Laurens County.
Residents are encouraged to join in the rewarding fun by volunteering at one of the organized cleanups, visit www.laurenscounty.org/klcb & drop down to “Earth Day Events 2023,” plan a community cleanup of your own, or grab a bag and pick up in your area. Be sure to report your totals.
Keep Laurens County Beautiful is proudly participating in the Upstate Team-up to Clean-up between upstate Keep America Beautiful affiliates. This initiative is a friendly challenge between Counties to collect the most litter, creating a blanket impact across Upstate, South Carolina and an even larger impact in each County. The challenge has spurred many cleanups, and the enthusiasm for this cause is spreading fast. The teamwork and positive impact that this collective effort will have on our community is evident.
