ALBANY, GA (WALB) – An Albany neighborhood is doing more to stop the crime, by stacking the trash.

About two dozen people from the Shadowlawn neighborhood got up early this morning to clean up their streets.

The collected bags of trash form the streets.

A new neighborhood watch groups and the clean-up effort is part of a drive to make the neighborhood better.

"Trying to get it back safe for the kids to grow up the way it was when in grew up around here," Tommy NeSmith, Neighborhood Watch Member.

"Part of the neighborhood watch is keeping our neighborhood clean so people will see we're serious about our area," said Monica Mims, Neighborhood Watch Member.

Neighbors have identified two elderly people and will make sure their lawn is clean and cut.
