MEDFORD, Ore. -- On Sunday, March 28, a community clean-up event was hosted by community member, Cassie Strickland.
Strickland says volunteers who participated collected and disposed of trash from Andrews St. to Alice St. and from Court St. to Riverside Ave. starting at 12 p.m.
Community businesses, Western States Environmental and Pointe Pest Control allowed volunteers to utilize its dumpsters.
Strickland says she and her 6-year-old son clean-up their neighborhood, and anywhere else that they go, regularly but wanted to help in a bigger way.
Though this clean-up effort was previously planned, it follows Sen. Jeff Merkley's plans to reintroduce the Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act.
