Albany - It's time to clean up Albany and Dougherty County. Albany leaders set the tone by picking up trash and debris across the city on Friday. It's the kick-off for a community-wide litter pick-up event that will take place Saturday.

Already, more than 1700 people have volunteered to pick up trash. Also, Dougherty County Juvenile Court adopted Holloway Park to keep it clean, and keep kids away from a life of crime. Judge Herbie Solomon says, "We will have children who have run afoul of the law to come out and perform community service at the park."

"We shouldn't be putting litter out," said Judy Bowles of Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful. "Last year, DOT spent $14 Million picking up trash on the side of state roads, that's our tax money."

Last year during the community pickup, 57 tons of litter was removed from 80 miles of roadway. You can help in the clean up process, just go to the intersection of Turner Field Road and Turner Avenue Saturday morning at 9:00.
