LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. — Volunteers say the cleanup was not easy due to the unleveled terrain and the years' worth of litter and debris that needed to be disposed of.
One Limestone County commissioner says the cleanup was a success and hopes the community will keep the road litter-free.
"Just trying to get this road back in shape from all the dumping that's happened over the last 25 to 30 years, probably longer than that. We had a great turn out and we've made a lot of success and we're hoping to get all this road back to where it needs to be and maybe stop the dumping on this road," said LaDon Townsend, District 4 Commissioner, Limestone County.
This cleanup is a reminder that it's important to dispose of trash properly and if you do see litter, pick it up.
