Nearly 22 tons of litter picked up during April clean-up event

The Hall County Landfill collected nearly 22 tons of litter picked up as a part of Keep Hall Beautiful’s Team Up to Clean Up event, which concluded Monday.

“I’m so very proud of the work our community did to make Hall County a cleaner place to live, work and visit,” Hall County District 4 Commissioner Jeff Stowe said.  “We have responded to complaints from constituents regarding litter and will continue to do so as we work to address the root cause of littering in our community.”

Clean up events were organized throughout the month of April at various locations across the County, including Floyd Road and Atlanta Highway.

The total amount collected was weighed at the Landfill and totaled 21.72 tons.  Hall County officials are currently studying the option of purchasing and implementing an Automated Recycling Center, which could have kept up to 40 percent of that tonnage out of the landfill. 

Stowe said he was proud of the work done by volunteers throughout the month.

“I believe we have set an example as a leader in our community for litter pick-up and prevention, quantifying—in tons—the need for anti-litter efforts throughout the area,” he said.   “I’d also like to take this opportunity to commend our Road Maintenance staff for their efforts on this initiative, realizing that their dedication to litter pick-ups is evident year round and not just during a one-day event.”

The Team Up 2 Clean Up event was spearheaded by Keep Hall Beautiful in conjunction with Earth Day on April 22 and the Great American Clean-Up.
