CASEY COUNTY CLEANUP CHALLENGE

How to Start!

Challenge Instructions: The 2021 Casey County Clean-Up Challenge will run from February 24- April 22, 2021. CONTEST END APRIL 22ND. TRACKING FORMS ARE DUE by APRIL 23RD. Winners will be announced on APRIL 26th. Take a moment to pick up trash on Casey County roadways, side roads, and in areas of need. This challenge can be completed as an individual, family, church, or any group. Post a few photos of each mini cleanup to YOUR Facebook or Instagram Page including a variety of before, during, and after your clean-up. Make sure the post is Public & not Friends Only. Tag each post with #CaseyCountyCleanupChallenge and #FindingLiberty to share your hard work!

While we encourage this to be a social media challenge, our overall goal is to CLEAN up Liberty/Casey County. Don’t have social media? No problem, take photos throughout your cleanup and send us a few that include before and after and a few of the bags you pick up. Don’t forget to show how much fun you had making your community better! 

******SUPPLIES & DISPOSAL******

Don’t have your own supplies? No problem! Pick up a FREE cleanup kit at Liberty City Hall Drive-Through M-F 8-4:30 PM. Kit includes 4 large trash bags and 6 pairs of disposable gloves. *While supplies last.

For disposal of trash, we ask that you take small amounts back to your home for discarding. For larger group cleanup, please call 606-706-7777 to schedule and make arrangements for pickup.

TRACK IT!

Track your clean-ups and submit them to compete for our Casey County Clean Up Grand Prize. If entering as a group, choose one record keeper to track progress. Prizes based on number of bags collected. Small bags add up to equal large bags!
