Judge Executive Reagan Taylor announced Thursday a series of cleanup initiatives including the dates for this year’s annual spring 2021 Madison County Litter Cleanup. 

The Madison County Litter Cleanup is one of two annual cleanup events hosted by Madison County thanks to a Litter Abatement Grant.  Judge Executive Reagan Taylor announced that the Madison County Fiscal Court was the recipient of a $60,800 Environmental Cabinet grant to pay community organizations a per mile rate for cleanup while also providing materials like pickup sticks, reflective vests, gloves and garbage bags. 

“This year’s abundant flooding coupled with delays in trash pickup due to winter storm and flooding events has increased the amount of trash visible on our main roadways more than any year in recent history,” said Judge Executive/KACo President Reagan Taylor. “None of us want our beautiful County covered in trash. For this reason, I have moved the spring event, which is usually in late April, to April 2-May 8, 2021.” 

Inmate Cleanup

In addition to the Litter Abatement Cleanup, the Madison County Detention Center has begun supervised inmates cleanup on major State and County roadways.

“Inmate crews started picking up trash on Wednesday on major roadways in Madison County as well as in the cities of Richmond and Berea,” said Madison County Jailer Steve Tussey. “Inmates have been vetted to ensure we have the lowest risk inmates out and all will be supervised by jail deputies.”

State Roads Cleanup Update

The State Transportation Cabinet is responsible for cleanup of the interstate and state roadways (state roadways are designated with a KY on the road sign like KY-52 and KY-388).  The State subcontracts with a private company and were on the I-75 doing pickup this past weekend.  They will continue to work on trash cleanup on state roadways throughout the spring and mowing seasons.

Interested in Volunteering
While the slots for community groups receiving the per mile rate if full, we will always accept volunteers and supply them with cleanup materials. If you are interested, please contact the Road Department’s Solid Waste Division at 859-624-4709.

Safety Please
We ask citizens to please take caution while driving near pickup events. Please slow down and be aware as we have volunteers and staff on the roadways for cleanup.
