“Think Clean?…Think Covington!” – the 2015 Covington Cleanest City Contest theme falls right in line with Covington’s City-wide Cleanup campaign beginning Saturday, March 7th. Through the coordinated effort and sponsorship of Covington Garden Club’s Cleanest City Contest Committee, Keep Covington Beautiful, Progressive Waste, the City of Covington administration, and the Covington City Council serving as honorary cleanup chairmen of their respective districts, large trash containers will be placed in the City’s five council districts March 7th thru March 15th. (Dumpster locations are currently being determined.) Citizens are encouraged to get their “Spring Cleaning” done early and polish their homes and yards during the week-long event — just in time for the Cleanest City judging to take place on Tuesday, March 17th. Kicking off the city-wide cleanup on Saturday, March 7th, the Cleanest City Contest Committee in partnership with Keep Covington Beautiful will host a Covington Business District Cleanup event and are issuing a “CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS”. The public is invited to join the March 7th cleanup event beginning at 9:00 a.m. at the Covington Trailhead, 419 N. New Hampshire Street. Keep Covington Beautiful will be supplying gloves, grabbers, and trash bags. Heritage Bank has donated water for the event.
“Think Clean?…Think Covington!” is our goal for all the citizens of Covington. For this undertaking to be successful we need the support of businesses, community organizations, churches, and schools. If we can count on your support financially or to volunteer for clean-up contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Covington needs all of us to pitch in and keep it the community we love,” Betty Cronin, Covington Garden Club Cleanest City Contest 2015 Chair. The judging of the contest is traditionally held in early Spring and will take place in Covington on Tuesday, March 17th, 2015. Visit www.covla.com for more info.
