THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Thomas County is getting a make over.
Keep Thomas County Beautiful, in partnership with Thomasville Utilities Solid Waste, Thomas County Public Works, and Hands on Thomas County, will present local activities for the annual Great American Cleanup.
People of all ages are encouraged to volunteer. "The honor society from Thomas County High School and some of the youth from Glad Tidings, we're gunna get together and try to walk about two and a half miles picking up litter," said Code Enforcement Officer Wade Burnette.
Volunteers and county workers will pick up trash, plant trees, and paint signs. Recycled materials will also be collected.
One of the collection spots is the old railroad station on Jackson. "There we'll be collecting white goods, which are refrigerators, stoves, different household appliances. Brown goods which would be furniture, sofas, different stuff like that, electronics," said Recycling Coordinator Felecia Cochran.
Cochran says it is not too late to sign up. "My advice would be for anyone that wanted to volunteer and they haven't had a chance to sign up that they go out to Cherokee Park around nine O' clock. There will be a team of people out there working."
Immediately following the cleanup there will be a reception at Cherokee Park. There will be food and drinks as well as gifts for everyone who volunteered. Tomorrow's event begins at nine AM and will run until noon.
