If you take a cruise down Route 29 or 33 in Greene County, you won't notice anything but the pretty scenery. The "Keep Greene Clean" effort just wrapped up.
Every spring the Ruritan Club in Greene teams up with other volunteers to clean up the roads. Members from the Assign a Highway program have also been cleaning these past few weeks. These are people who have to do community service.
Trustees from the Greene County Jail were also part of the effort. The cleanup is done but all of the bags still need to be taken to the landfill.
"We'll just stress to folks that, as we're taking items to the landfill on the back of the trucks or the trailers, just to be sure that everything is secure because a lot of trash and debris does fall off the back of those, the trailers and the trucks," said Greene County Sheriff Steve Smith.
Smith says just from this spring the groups picked up more than 300 bags of garbage. That doesn't include the tires and old furniture. And since last spring, the groups have gathered a couple of tons of trash.
