Annual Spring Clean Up Held At Carr Creek Lake

Dozens of people were picking up trash around an Eastern Kentucky lake today.

Saturday was the annual spring clean up at Carr Creek Lake. Every year they give a dollar for each bag of trash collected.

Travis Warf lives at the Carr Creek Marina and he says the clean up is good for tourism.

"It’s a good thing for the community and hopefully people that see this, it will encourage them to throw their garbage away," Warf said.

Army Corps. of Engineers officials say they have a clean up committee made up of community members and groups that organize the event every year. Officials say the spring clean up is the last Saturday of April every year.
