GREEN IS CLEAN MONTH

 

2017 Lexington County April's GREEN IS CLEAN MONTH

 

The Lexington County Council, by resolution, proclaimed April as “Green is Clean Month” and encouraged
residents to honor Earth Day (April 22nd) throughout the month of April by participating in several events to
raise environmental awareness in our community. These events are hosted by the County of Lexington’s
Solid Waste Management Department and Public Works Department, Stormwater Division, in partnership
with Lexington Countywide Stormwater Consortium, South Carolina Department of Agriculture,
Keep the Midlands Beautiful, and County Municipalities.
