If you walk down the 2800 block of North Ridgeway, especially by the first three or four houses off the alley, you'll notice that things are a little cleaner. Well, if anybody is wondering who cleaned up, that was me. I woke up at 6:13am. I woke up for a few minutes, then I grabbed a garbage bag, got dressed, put on my sweater and my shoes, then went to work.
I spent about 15 minutes picking up trash on the grass such as tissues, caps of beer bottles, small garbage bags, wrappers of candy, plastic bags (for things like chips and cookies) and cups. That's not all I picked up. I even picked up a pair of sunglasses and a bottle of cream or cool whip.
It felt good to go out there and pick up the trash on the street. It looks cleaner over here now. In fact, I'm so proud of doing this that it makes me want to do this every weekend. I plan on doing this again next weekend, around the same time or a little later.
I encourage all of my readers to do their part and clean up the trash on their streets. It will make you feel good, you'll get a breath of fresh air and you'll hopefully discourage the litters from throwing their trash on the ground.
If you have any comments to share, please by all means do.
