Dozens participate in City of LaGrange Litter Cleanup in Jones Street Park

The City of LaGrange hosted its first litter cleanup of the year for the 2022-2023 litter cleanup campaign Saturday, October 1st, 8AM – 10AM at Jones Street Park, 131 Jones Street.

More than thirty people participated in this morning’s litter cleanup from community members to LaGrange High School Service Club members.
City Manager Meg Kelsey wanted to send a message to the community that the City of LaGrange is serious about cleaning up litter and rolled
out the city’s litter campaign, “Leaving LaGrange Better Than We Found It” in April 2018. The City of LaGrange closed nonessential business & hundreds of employees picked up trash throughout the community. It was so successful with employees and the community that the city decided to hold monthly litter cleanups.
