Our Annual Family Spring Street-Sweep

For the past three years our family has adopted a portion of the street we live on to keep free of litter. Each spring we watch for the snow to melt off the grassy areas on the sides of the road in anticipation of our family ritual. At last in April the weather was conducive to dedicating our family night activity to collecting the trash on our street. We filled several grocery bags with all sorts of garbage that built up over the winter and had remained trapped under the snow and ice. Each time we walk, bike or drive down our street, we feel satisfaction in knowing we are helping to beautify our neighborhood and keep trash from collecting in sewers and running into our beautiful rivers and lakes.
