Hundreds participate in the second Countywide Cleanup Day

Last Saturday after only taking a few steps on Hamlet Highway, Luther Grace had already filled a green bag with litter.
"I think it is disrespectful how people threw trash out," said Grace, who was picking up trash with a group from Shiloh Baptist Church.
Grace and more than 500 people spread out around Marlboro County for the second Countywide Community Cleanup Day on May 4.
As he picked up trash, Grace said he volunteered because he wanted to help send a message to those who litter.
"We need to keep the county clean," he said.
Volunteers were picking up trash on various roadways in bright yellow shirts. Officials said more than 60 groups participated.
Will Rogers Jr., solicitor for the Fourth Judicial Circuit, picked up trash with a group on Old Wire Road.
