Albany -- Friday morning, dozens of elected officials and city and county employees picked up litter around downtown. The annual "Stash the Trash" clean up day is Saturday.

More than 2,000 volunteers are expected to pick up litter in all parts of the county. Representative Freddie Powell Sims joined in this morning because she says a clean community is a prosperous community.

"We have a lot of people coming in looking to relocate their families, businesses," she said. "So it's important for us to have a clean community. It's also important for us to have a clean community because then we can feel good about ourselves also."

Last year volunteers cleaned up 107-tons of garbage on 69 miles of roadway. You can also drop off unwanted, old tires for free tomorrow. Just take them to GCR Tire Center on West Oglethorpe between 7:00AM and noon. The tires will be recycled.
