Great American Clean Up Week One

BagOTrash_1993When I first became active in the Great American Clean Ups three years ago, I learned that not everyone is as enthusiastic about cleaning up someone else’s mess as I am. I’ve made a goal to clean up Newsome Station Road near my home during the next three months whether anyone helps me or not. Today I picked up 70 cans and plastic bottles off the side of the road.

Trash_1995I filled one garbage bag and accomplished this in less than 30 minutes. The bag weighed over 20 pounds.

Let me know if you would like to join me in the pick ups. I’ll probably do an hour a week — maybe more hours if I get some help. I can supply garbage bags and gloves.
