Consider yourself cordially invited to my neighborhood this Saturday to help pick up trash. If you have been consistently reading this blog, then you’ll remember what sorts of gems can be found among the gutter junk: My Little Pony action figures (saw another one yesterday), furniture, and medical paraphernalia. The Great American Cleanup provides trash pickers with a solid excuse for sifting through roadside debris.
If the dogooderness of this is not inspiring and you do not need to fulfill some kind of community service requirement, consider this: litter clean ups are great places to meet significant others.
If you can not make it by this Saturday, you can contact Knox Parks Foundation to find out where clean ups will be meeting on April 24, May 1, and May 8th.
