Community leaders clean up trash in Henderson

HENDERSON, Ky. (WFIE) - The city of Henderson, along with the Downtown Henderson Partnership and Henderson County High School’s LAUNCH program, is hosting a “Team Up to Clean Up” event.

Organizers say the event is a collaborative effort to help beautify Henderson’s Central Business District and riverfront.

The clean-up event was held from noon to 4 p.m. on Friday and will be held again on Saturday from 8 a.m. until noon.

On Friday, employees from downtown businesses gathered at The Depot parking lot at 101 N. Main.

They picked up trash and debris along the central business district streets, then finished their cleaning efforts at Audubon Mill Park.

On Saturday, students from Henderson County’s LAUNCH program will be out along the riverfront to gather debris along the banks of the Ohio River.

They say they will start at Deaconess Henderson Hospital and work south, finishing around the Doc Hosbach Tennis Courts.

Those who want to take part in the “Team Up to Clean Up” effort should contact Jeff Givens at 812-499-8493.
