Rockdale County has launched a youth cleanup crew to help pick up litter throughout the county this summer. The youths, who are working under adult supervision, are concentrating their efforts on residential communities.
Rockdale Board of Commissioners Chairman Oz Nesbitt said he welcomes the crew of young people. The youths, he said, are enhancing the county’s stepped-up efforts to clean up the county now that it has hired a code enforcement officer.
Rockdale held a community-wide cleanup on June 10. Several county employees and department heads joined volunteers from the community to pick up trash. Photos from the event are available at the On Common Ground News (Official) Facebook page.
