Annual Lake Sinclair cleanup this week

MILLEDGEVILLE — The annual Renew Our Rivers Lake Sinclair Cleanup Day will be held from 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday beginning at Plant Branch. 

Renew our Rivers is part of the statewide Rivers Alive program, a statewide annual program designed to keep Georgia waterways clean. Last year, hundreds of local volunteers picked up debris from the water and cleaned the shoreline near Sinclair Dam, Highway 441, Green Boat Landing, Cedar Creek, Potato Creek and the Twin Bridges area.

The local program is conducted through Georgia Power since the energy company is charged with maintaining the lake. Throughout the year, problem spots are identified and two months ahead of the cleanup, an even more aggressive effort is made to see what areas most need cleaning.

Some of the roadways around the lake will also benefit from the cleanup with deputies from Baldwin and Putnam Counties patrolling and creating safe zones for trash collection.

Volunteers will meet at Plant Branch, 1100 Milledgeville Highway, for registration and location assignments. 

Please call ahead to participate. Various community and business donors will provide lunch for the volunteers. 

A can food drive for non-perishable food items will also be set up at the registration table on Wednesday. 

To register to take part, call Taron Durden (478) 453-3496 extension 321, Guerry Brooks (706) 485-8704 extension 2 or Sandra Hudson (706) 485-8704 extension 7.
