“Working together, Mobilians removed more than a quarter of a million pounds of litter from our streets and waterways last year, and that’s truly amazing,” Mayor Sandy Stimpson said. “I’d like to thank the entire City of Mobile Litter Crew as well as fantastic partners like the Alabama Department of Transportation, Ransom Ministries and the Osprey Initiative. Finally, if you picked up trash on your daily run or participated in a community clean-up in 2022, we thank you for your contribution too!”
The City of Mobile created a Litter Toolkit in 2021 to “help organized community cleanups and report data from them,” according to the release.
