Norfolk Rotary has picked up trash at city parks and in the Ward's Corner neighborhood. On Saturday, we branched out to pick up trash along the entrance and exit ramps to/from I-64 at Little Creek. Special rules apply to this trash pickup. We were required to have a permit to pick up the trash and to have it with us in case we were stopped by the police. Additionally, we wore bright vests to ensure that we were clearly visible.
As with most trash pick up activities, we got the assorted cans, beer and liquor bottles, paper and plastic cups and bags, and pizza boxes. What was unusual was the other assorted things we gathered such as car parts, plumbing supplies, cardboard signs and metal. In total, we picked up 16 large trash bags and 30 pounds of other items.
