Pick Up America Event to Gather Trash

Pick Up America is a pro-environmental group making its way across the nation, cleaning up trash from alongside roadways. From the project's starting point in Maryland, group organizers and local volunteers have already cleaned up more than 118,000 pounds of litter. Now, Pick Up America is coming to northeast Kansas to tackle roadside trash in parts of Johnson and Douglas counties. Greg Katski (KAT-skee) is a volunteer with the group, and says this particular event will be its most ambitious yet.

The Midwest Litter Fest cleanup will cover 45 miles of area roadways, beginning in Shawnee Mission Park. The event will take place Saturday, September 24th. For more details, a map, and to register as a volunteer, visit
