April is Earth Month! Every year around Earth Day volunteers throughout the Bluegrass get out and clean up their communities as part of Main Street Clean Sweep. Join us in your community around Earth Day for our fifth annual Main Street Clean Sweep presented by Commonwealth Credit Union! 

Community Details are available here!

Main Street Clean Sweep is a volunteer-led, community-based litter clean up that takes place in 20 Central Kentucky communities. Last year over 1,000 people across Central Kentucky came together to collect four tons of litter, beautify their community, and show their pride-in-place! Event participants will receive clean-up supplies including bags and gloves. Water will be provided, and each participant will receive a t-shirt (t-shirts are first come, first serve!).

Main Street Clean Sweep is presented by Commonwealth Credit Union with partnership from PNC Bank, Valvoline, Republic Waste Haulers, and Betchel Parsons. Community sponsors include the City of Wilmore, City of Winchester, Farmers National Bank, Apollo Pizza, and Mike’s Hike and Bike.
