Cleaning Up the Streets

By , April 14, 2010 4:22 pm

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.

    These cleanups are a lot of fun and usually well organized.

    Just be sure tht after you all have picked up after everyone else that someone, KNOX, the city, (?) comes around and picks up after you. No black bags left for months spilling there contents on the side of the road, no piles of branches and other junk left for another day. If the powers that sent out this call out can do that then perhpas I will join the effort on one of the dates and bring a few other folks too.

    • Right! Last year when I did this, a garbage truck came out and collected the bags and debris. I hope the clean up will be this organized again. Bags left along the road are just asking to be torn open by people, dogs, raccoons, etc.
