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.
