Cleanup Group Tackles Trash, Debris

Cleanup Group Tackles Trash, Debris

 

Milledgeville, Georgia – On Sunday October 14, 2012, eight community members gathered downtown to give some of the alleys much needed love. The small group of dedicated volunteers met at the Main Street office at 2pm before heading out to start cleaning.

Although the group was small, they were able to get several areas cleaned up and looking much better. The alleyway behind the Masonic Lodge and Auntie Bellums Attic was the first place they tackled along with an alleyway next to City Hall and the area behind the buildings on the east side of South Wayne Street. The group moved trash, old furniture and yard debris from all locations filling a large City truck and three Herby Curby’s.
