KY River Litter Clean-Up

Dozens of volunteers showed up over the weekend at the Kentucky River to help with trash clean-up.The annual river sweep has been a tradition for the past 25 years. “Unlike many cities, we have a lot of creeks that flow through our city, but we don’t have a river that runs through the middle,” said Jennifer Myatt, Fayette County River Sweep coordinator. “We get to bring people down and they get to see the Kentucky river up close.”Myatt said the group usually picks up around 1 ton of trash that included lawn furniture, old coolers, pieces of boats, a water heater and even a message in a bottle.
