Rock Creek Clean-ups

The "Advocacy" decided to designate 5 separate areas this year on Rock Creek and it's tributaries. There is no scheduled clean-up for Rock Creek this year, but when homeowners/property owners have 6/8 people who will work for 1 day, during the week, we will bring our boat, 50 feet long, with life jackets and tools and assist them in picking up the styrofoam in their area. They will have to load and unload the white styrofoam.

1-Crooked Creek and White Oak
2-Rock Creek from triple creek marina to "head" of Rock Creek
3-Bailey Bridge south including Little Crooked Creek
4-Rock creek from Little Crooked Creek to the Sipsey including Bear Branch
5- From the Sipsey to Duncan Bridge including Dismal and Little Dismal.

Winston County Assign-A-Highway Program Volunteer Inspectors

The Assign-A-Highway program is looking for some volunteers to help with the roadside inspections that take place twice a month. This would simply mean that you would drive through an assigned section of highway to make sure that the garbage is being picked up. If the filled bags are still on site, we would like you to make sure they are being placed in the proper location and that the bag tags are being attached. If you think you might be interested in being a Volunteer Inspector please give Crystal a call at 205-489-8887 for more information. She currently has workers in the following areas and would like volunteers to monitor their work cleaning the roadsides:
  • Addison: County Road 41 North, County Road 39 North and County Road 99
  • Arley: County Road 41 near Duncan Bridge
  • Double Springs: 3 sections of Hwy 195 (from Scenic Drive to the Walker Co line)
  • County Road 327 and County Road 28
  • Haleyville: County Road 11
  • Grayson area: County Road 63 and County Road 3171
Thanks for your support of the Winston County Assign-A-Highway Program.
