The govt gives people free bus rides, food stamps, money for rent and electric bills but Pima County and Tucson want you to clean up the streets which is the actual job of the government. I like the part where they call for you to do your part.
Here is the press release:
Grab a friend, some gloves and the trash bags and do your part to help tackle the refuse and litter that accumulates over time in the alleys, residential streets and neighborhood parks.
Residents throughout Pima County and Tucson will be cleaning up their yards and neighborhoods in the Operation Clean Sweep anti-litter campaign held on Oct. 20.
“Neighborhoods are key in helping us create a vibrant, healthy future,” said Pima County Supervisor Ray Carroll. “In , we can not only make them safer, cleaner and more livable, but we can build relationships that strengthen connections with one another.”
Board of Supervisors Chairman Ramón Valadez agreed. “This is a wonderful opportunity to not only make the community cleaner and more , but it is a chance to offer a helping hand to one another at the same time.”
The one-day event is supported by a host of governments and community organizations, including Pima County, the City of Tucson, Green Things, the Tucson Metro Chamber, Tucson Regional Economic Opportunities and Tucson Clean & Beautiful.
Residents are encouraged to keep safety in mind.
Please refrain from picking up trash along streets with speed limits higher than 25 miles per hour and be watchful of other threats to public , from snakes and insects, to hypodermic needles and medical waste. Don’t forget the water and sunscreen.
