SAN ANGELO – San Angelo LIVE! earlier this week reported that citizens across San Angelo are tired and concerned about trash piling up on W. Loop 306 near the Texas DPS Office recently.
Trash in the area has been building up for weeks and now a group of Angelo State University students has stepped up to help address the problem.
Following that article, students with the Angelo State University Community Outreach and Greek Life decided that they are going to help fix the problem. This Saturday, Aug. 27, starting at 9:30 a.m. students will be cleaning the entire portion of the loop from the Department of Public Safety Office on Foster Rd. to the east to the TLCA high school campus in the Bluffs to the west.
The group asks that students do the cleaning but says the public could help in a separate way. If you have trash make sure it gets in a trash can. Here are a few tips on how to prevent littering:
Make sure your trash is secure.
Keep a litter bag in your vehicle.
Make good use of recycle bins
The most important tip out there though is 'Don't be Lazy, Care About the Earth, and Pick Up Your Own Trash.'
