ASHVILLE — The St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public for help identifying areas with litter problems.
Sheriff Billy Murray said new trucks and trailers have been brought in to help the crews clean up trash across the county.
“Litter is something that we want to make sure we give our best effort to get it cleaned up and we want to apply our attention to any roads that are in bad shape,” said Murray.
Although the sheriff’s office has been involved with picking up litter for many years, the litter crew’s trucks were over 20 years old and had to be replaced.
“The trucks were outdated and we had to purchase two trailers and get them to the specs and size that we needed,” explained Murray.
The trucks also had to be equipped with new radios and safety equipment, and they had to be marked with the sheriff’s office logo.
“It’s certainly something we are going to put our best efforts behind,” Murray added. “We have a beautiful county and we want to keep it that way.”
If anyone knows of any roads that are in need of litter control, they are asked to call or email the Sheriff’s Office. That information can be found on the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office website.
