City, County workers "Stash the Trash"

April 18, 2003

Albany-- City and County workers abandoned their downtown Albany offices to pick up trash in the streets.

Charlie Jackson is the Street Maintenance Superintendent for Public Works. He picked up a little bit of everything at this "Stash the Trash" event--bottles, cigarette butts, and bits of paper, "It's hard to see it especially when I have a litter crew down here daily picking up trash. Like I say, it just reappears overnight."

12 blocks of downtown were cleaned up. But, there is still more work to be done. Saturday is the annual, community-wide, "Stash the Trash" event. More than 2,000 people are signed up to pick up litter across the city. If you want to help, but have not yet signed up, just meet at the corner of Central and Mulberry Streets in East Albany at nine in the morning.
