Litter is everywhere. It increases pests, costs us tax dollars and lowers property values says Linda Walker of Pittsburg Beautiful, a group who's taken on littering for the past 15 years.
Walker says each of us plays a role.
"When you see litter, we're so used to walking by it and ignoring it and we can't anymore," says Walker. "We must pick up the litter that's on the street. When you walk by it, pick it up."
Pittsburg Beautiful is looking for volunteers to help pick up litter on Saturday April 13. Volunteers are to meet at 10 a.m. on the Pittsburg bypass at 20th Street.
