Pineville schedule cleanups
The annual event, part of the nonprofit Keep America Beautiful, runs through May 31.”It’s taking ownership of where you live,” said Jake Wilson, senior environmental specialist for the Charlotte Mecklenburg Land Use and Environmental Services Agency. Volunteers will meet at Stumptown Park on East Trade Street, where they will be assigned to a cleanup area. “That’s why I do it. It’s especially important given the county’s recent budget woes.”We need the community to get involved and act quickly,” said Wilson. “You can adopt a highway (or) a city street in Charlotte. You can take ownership of where you live. . Get motivated. Get the neighbors together. When a street or neighborho rolex watches od is cleaned by volunteers, most of the collected litter is recycled. Pineville is now at a 44 percent pickup rate for curbside rec rolex watches ycling.”It’s our community that we are trying to preserve,” said Rose. “Volunteering is a way for us to stay clean and green, to improve our future.”
