Sam Shields says “Keep Church Hill Clean”

Keep Church Hill Clean

You may have noticed signs in the neighborhood, asking you to pick up a piece of trash. I started this project for my school’s Environmental Project.

Last semester, I cleaned up trash in the neighborhood, on this one street north of Jefferson. I picked up trash there every weekend with my dad, but sadly, the trash kept coming back. This angered me and made my work feel useless. But then I realized that if I can get a group of people to do it then we get a lot of people doing the work. Small amounts per person would mean that neighbors wouldn’t have to clean up so much trash.

I came up with the Trash Challenge so that people could pick up trash, feel good about keeping Church Hill clean, and not feel so tired. I have left signs in empty lots, and flyers on poles so I can spread the word.

I figure that if people see their neighborhood environment clean then hopefully no one will litter anymore. Thank you for your help. And when you see someone litter, tell them to USE A TRASH CAN AND KEEP CHURCH HILL CLEAN!
