Yes Bob and little Carter McManus clean our yard up and got bags cups cigarette butts and u name it picked up and now it’s back. Why do people throw their trash out and not care that someone else has to clean it

BOOM! Thank you. Hope it helps.

Just a bunch of pigs.

Great sign. Desperately needed in more areas. It appears a lot of folks were never educated on the use of a trash can.

YES!

Live along 218 and they throw out the bottoms, black plastic from microwave dinners, etc. If you want to throw paper, etc. throw some money. Can only imagine what their houses look like....

Do we need any tools to aid in the cleanup?

I can clean up the trails in town.

Last Saturday I picked up from Cassville to the Transmission Plant Parking Lot.

Bill will provide big plastic bags. Please bring gloves and if you have a trash picker (not sure what to call it). Which can be purchased at hardware stores, bring that. Easier on the back!! Bring friends and family to make our community a better place😀

Pray you have a great turn out it looks so beautiful
