Enhanced efforts under way to cut down on litter | Best Of
It takes a lot of work to keep our community free of trash and debris. Last year, from July to December, volunteers and probationers picked up 997 bags of litter along our major roads and intersections. Just this year from January 10 to February 8, Public Works has picked up 645 bags of litter.
Last year we provided support for 236 neighborhood cleanups that yielded more than 787 tons of junk! That includes stuff like old tires and appliances dumped in empty lots. As our crews cut the grass around town, they pick up trash in the process. Last year they collected 42 tons of debris.
In an effort to combat this ongoing battle, The Bibb County Sheriff's office is ramping up efforts to enforce litter citations and catch people who trash our turf. You can read the resolution here.
