Second Annual Great Oconee Clean Up scheduled

In celebration of the county’s sesquicentennial, the Oconee Economic Alliance (OEA) is challenging residents to pick up 150 bags of litter, explains OEA Marketing and Communications Manager Daja Dial. “We’re doing one bag at a time during the month of March. It is about trying to collect 150 bags of trash in relation to our 150th anniversary of Oconee County. So, we are asking families, students everybody to get out on their street or where ever they live, work, or play and to pick up a full bag of trash and shot us a picture. We encourage everyone to follow us on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or LinkedIn and hashtag us at #OconeeEconomicAlliance or #ThinkOconee and share what you are doing. We are just trying to make Oconee County more beautiful and a greater place to live one bag at a time.” Volunteers are also needed for the 2nd Annual Great Oconee Clean Up scheduled for this spring, continues Dial. “We have our 2nd Annual Great Oconee Clean Up scheduled for April 21, from 8:30am to noon. We will be starting at Blue Ridge Electric on Highway 11. This is just about making our county more beautiful and inviting for business but also for our visitors and the people who live here. This is about making the place that you live more beautiful and about taking pride in where you live.” You can volunteer for the 2nd Annual Great Oconee Clean Up on April 21, by registering at The first 200 people to register are guaranteed a t-shirt.
