An event that aims to keep communities clean is underway in Etowah County. The Great American Cleanup event is part of the Keep Etowah Beautiful program. The event focuses on cleaning up trash, garbage and debris. Residents in the Gadsden- Etowah County are encouraged to go out into the community and clean, wherever it is needed. Gadsden Mayor Sherman Guyton says this is just one of the many efforts to help keep his city clean. The cleanup event will last until Friday evening. For those who are participating, once you and your team have completed an area, just call the City of Gadsden Engineering Department and the trash will be picked up.
