Now in its second year, Keep Laurens County Beautiful (KLCB), is partnering with Keep Greenwood County Beautiful (KGCB) to conquer the litter issue at Lake Greenwood.

  • Break on the Lake

“The lake cleanup efforts have resulted in the removal of 61,802 pounds of litter from Lake Greenwood and the surrounding areas,” said Ben Herig, Executive Director of KGCB. “Last year alone, with the help of over 300 volunteers, 5,502 pounds of litter were removed, and we hope the 2023 cleanup will drastically exceed those numbers.”

“KLCB is proud to partner with KGCB on such an important initiative” says Courtney Stonell, KLCB Affiliate Coordinator, “We look forward to seeing our volunteers at the Laurens County locations River Fork Boat Ramp, Camp Fellowship, Moon’s Landing.”

The continued success of the event is made possible by the important partnership between Laurens County and Greenwood County. The Laurens County Sheriff’s office volunteers each year to help maintain a safe environment for getting the job done.
