More than 135 Albany and Dougherty County government and community leaders spent this morning picking up trash. Now they are asking you to join the community clean up Saturday.

New City Manager James Taylor one of many government leaders taking part in their team effort. Picking up lots of garbage of every kind in the downtown area.

This is the 23rd annual stash the trash clean up, showing pride in the community.

They found lots of garbage, trash, and litter, but said they can't solve the problem alone.

"But I think the real way you resolve the problem is have our citizens pitch in and help us. When they see things, pick them up. If they see people do things, tell us," said Taylor.

You can join the 23rd Annual Albany stash the trash community clean up. Meet at 9:00 Saturday morning in the 100 block of Lexington Drive.

Keep Albany Beautiful will supply the trash bags and gloves for the big city clean up effort.
