Residents clean up Coshocton

Group PhotoCOSHOCTON – Residents of Coshocton met on Saturday, April 18 at the gazebo in the court square to help clean up their city during the annual Coshocton Clean-Up Day. Approximately 100 to 150 residents came out bright and early at 8:30 a.m. that morning to pick up their trash bags and disperse to various areas throughout the city to pick up trash and litter around the city. Groups worked at the Coshocton County Fairgrounds, along the railroad tracks, and up and down side streets in Coshocton.

“It’s like a day of caring, which is what United Way is all about,” said Lyn Mizer, United Way director. “It doesn’t require any money, just roll up your sleeves and get busy. Seeing the young kids here taking ownership of their city is great. Maybe one day when they’re with a bunch of friends and someone drops a cup on the street, they’ll say something and stand up for their city.”

The first 100 participants received a free t-shirt, and donuts were available. The event was sponsored by Coshocton County Recycling and Litter Prevention, SanCasT, Waste Management, and Boy Scouts Troop 403.
