Mt. Carmel Youth picked up litter Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

Our youth group picked up trash on Hwy 27 beginning at US 22 and going north five miles on November 2. There were 12 people who picked up trash and we had 42 bags full of trash and five tires in this stretch. We also had some swimming pool floats and (filled?) gas cans, but most of the trash was paper and plastic from fast food and drinks.

It was kind of scary picking up trash when dump trucks or tractor trailers went by and the air almost lifted us off the ground, but we stayed back from the road as far as we could.

Thanks for the opportunity to improve our neighborhood.
