Cleaning Up CR Starts Along I-380

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa -- The cool, wet weather didn't stop volunteers in Cedar Rapids from scouring the grass along I-380 for trash Saturday.

It was part of the city's *Clean Up C-R* campaign. Volunteers say every piece of litter they pick up makes a difference.

"I think it's sad when you drive down the road and you see all the litter that we have, and one bag makes a difference," said volunteer Deb Hutton. "I think it makes people's attitudes better about where they live and they see there is not so much garbage along the roads."

The City of Cedar Rapids says they depend on volunteers to keep the Interstate litter free. The city holds the pick-up twice a year, the next one is in October.
