April 2012

The Town of Lexington is proud to lend our hand to the environment and do our part in preserving Mother Nature.

Our Advisory Committee, along with community volunteers just wrapped up our sixth annual Great Lexington Cleanup, which focuses on street beautification. We will post the final collection results in next month's edition.

Along with our annual campaign, the Town is a member of the Lexington County Stormwater Consortium, who recently received two grants. These grants will provide a permanent rainwater barrel demonstration site, located in town at the Lexington County Auxiliary Building as well as the implementation of two stormwater runoff detention and treatment sites that will run along the County's greenway trail.

If that wasn't enough, the Town is a certified and charter member of the Lexington County Green Business program, which focuses on air and water quality, energy efficiency and waste reduction and recycling.

It is our civic duty to be outstanding stewards of the environment, preserving our natural resources. I encourage everyone to lend your hand this Earth Day, April 22. Together we CAN make a difference.
