Main Street Clean Sweep (MSCS) is our annual community-led litter cleanup in participating cities and towns throughout Central Kentucky. Volunteers gather to pick up and dispose of litter in their communities to help create a sustainable bluegrass. Note that this event is ALWAYS widely attended. MSCS encourages community engagement, pride in place, and beautifies the downtown areas of the cities and towns involved. By participating in this event you will boost support for local businesses. MSCS may seem like a simple litter cleanup, but small changes make a big impact. Because we know this to be true, clean-up events are held rain or shine. We hope to see you there!
Social distancing and masks will be enforced at all cleanups to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Volunteers must stay six feet apart for the duration of the event.
