Inmates from the Lawrence County Jail will begin Spring Trash Pick up details very soon. Inmates will be working along highway in Lawrence County removing trash and debris from ditch lines.
The Sheriff's Office is asking motorists to use caution while traveling roads this spring while inmates are on the detail. Work areas will be marked with Sheriff's patrol cars flashing lights, highway signage indicating inmates ahead. Inmates will also be visible wearing pink jumpsuits as well as lime green vests and carrying yellow trash bags.
Roadway clean up has been a successful program for the Lawrence County Sheriff's Office for several years now allowing several hundred bags of trash to be removed from the roadways in Lawrence County
