Group organizes cleanup effort in Jabez last weekend

A group of more than 45 volunteers gathered in Jabez over the weekend to help clean up around Lake Cumberland.

It was part of an effort known as A Cleaner Kentucky, led by Whitney Lewis, who has organized clean-up efforts across the state. Through these organized clean-up events, more than 20,000 bags of trash have been removed from along Kentucky’s shorelines, roadways, and other public areas since March 2023.

The group of volunteers gathered in Jabez last week, cleaning up trash in the area on Saturday and Sunday. According to reports, around 2,800 bags of trash were collected during this weekend’s clean-up efforts.
