|Phillip Sharp Academic cleaning litter|
The Phillip Sharp Academic team picked up 38 bags of trash on Highway 22 West on Saturday, November 24, 2012. It took 16 people and two hours to pick up all the garbage. It is sad that this job even needed to be done. We are disappointed that people litter so much, and we were surprised at what we found.
During the garbage pick-up, we noticed some patterns in the type of litter. Most of what we picked up were cans and bottles of beer and alcohol. Not only did people litter, but apparently they were drinking and driving. Two more things we found the most of were dip cans and fast food bags. We are very upset that the people take littering so lightly, and harm our beautiful planet.
