One thought on “Annual Spring Cleanup”

  1. I just returned from the cleanup event, and while I must say I appreciate getting rid of a truckload of yard debris for ten dollars, the organization and management of the donation site was horrible. It was not set up for mixed loads at all. I spent two hours in line creeping forward a few feet at a time, watching an assortment of volunteers running back and forth who did not seem to know what segment of the jobs at hand they were to attend to. The offloading by the dumpsters was set in a manner that created traffic jambs and bad angles for unloading. There was no one person who understood how to direct vehicles (if I can’t see you in my mirrors, I sure don’t know what you are asking me to do!) Next time I’ll just go to Metro to save time and my sanity. Poor management of events does not build neighborhood harmony.
