Help Albany "Stash the Trash"

April 11, 2006

Albany - Thousands of volunteers are needed to spruce up Dougherty County this weekend. The annual "Stash the Trash" litter clean up day is Saturday. Volunteers will pick up trash and debris all around the county.

Government leaders will kick off the clean up Friday morning by picking up litter downtown. Last year, more than 2,600 volunteers cleaned up 107-tons of garbage.

"DOT, in the State of Georgia, spent $14-million last year in state highways, picking up trash, litter and debris," said Judy Bowles with Keep Albany Dougherty Beautiful. "We should be spending that on more fruitful things."

To volunteer, call the Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful Office at 229-430-5257 before Friday afternoon. You'll get a free t-shirt and a clean community!

You can also drop off unwanted, old tires for free. Just bring them to GCR Tire Center on West Oglethrope between 7:00AM and noon on Saturday. The tires will be recycled.
