Join the 20th annual PRIDE Spring Cleanup

Volunteers are invited to join the historic 20th annual PRIDE Spring Cleanup, which will be held throughout April across 42 counties of southern and eastern Kentucky.
“Since the first Spring Cleanup in 1998, 433,460 people have volunteered with PRIDE,” said Tammie Wilson of PRIDE, the nonprofit organization that began the region’s tradition of an annual Spring Cleanup in 1998.
“That is an amazing number, but our region always needs one more volunteer: you!” Wilson said.
“PRIDE is all about appreciating the beauty of our region and taking personal responsibility for your corner of it,” she explained. “The Spring Cleanup is your chance to take charge of the trash near your home, church, business, or other place that is important to you.”
To volunteer, watch for announcements in your local media about Spring Cleanup events near you. Cleanup events also will be posted at and
Here are a few Spring Cleanup events already scheduled:
April 17 – US 27 Clean Sweep (Pulaski County).
April 21 – Dale Hollow Spring Cleanup.
April 28 – Cumberland Falls Spring Cleanup.
You also could plan your own Spring Cleanup event for your church, business, civic club, neighborhood association, school or other group. PRIDE will provide trash bags, safety vests and gloves to volunteers who want to pick up litter and dispose of it with their own trash. For larger projects, the local PRIDE Coordinator may be able to assist with trash disposal.
To get started, please call the PRIDE office, toll free, at 888-577-4339.
Locally, you can call your PRIDE Coordinator. Your coordinator’s phone number can be found by clicking your county on the map at
The region-wide PRIDE Spring Cleanup is sponsored by Walmart, Touchstone Energy Cooperative, Outdoor Venture Corp., and Kentucky American Water.
