Yes, it has been 25 years since the first 4-H club asked the Wayne Township Trustees if they would support a litter clean-up project. Since then, the Wayne Town & Country 4-H Club has continued that tradition. During the 25 years there have been over 2,500 volunteers who have given up their Saturday to collect over 62,000 pounds of trash in Wayne Township. Unfortunately there are still red solo cups and Bud Light cans scattered across the township. Being good stewards of the environment and good neighbors should be everyone’s goal, yet there are still individuals who feel it is OK to throw trash out their car windows. So after 25 years, we are still picking up trash.
In order to help the township have less trash and to make mowing less dangerous and to prevent the scattering of trash, we are once again having the Litter Pick Up on Wayne Township roads. This annual service project is sponsored by the Wayne Town & Country 4-H Club, the Wayne Township Fire and Life Squad, and the Wayne Township Trustees. Cans can be recycled and the general trash will be picked up by the road crew.
