Trees for Trash

Trees for Trash

Saturday was the annual Trees for Trash and Sheridan Media's Judy Hagerott brings us this story.

Spring is always a good time to clean up around the yard. Saturday was “Trees for Trash,” a time to clean up and green up the City of Sheridan and Sheridan County.

Residents could dispose up to a ton of trash free at the Sheridan County Landfill and receive a blue spruce in exchange.

Cathy Reed took advantage of the day.

Now, I tried to talk to the folks at the Landfill but they were either too busy or just didn't want to visit, maybe they were afraid of a microphone, but for Barry Olson, free dump day is a good deal.

Lots of volunteers were lending a hand including Erin Brennan.

One car stopped by me and the little guy inside, Andrew Langer, asked me “Where's Oscar?” Took me a second, but he was talking about “Oscar, the Grouch, that Sesame Street character living in the garbage can. I pointed off across the ways and said, 'He has to be out there somewhere.'

Volunteer Doris Moeller says it's all about keeping Sheridan beautiful.

May 17th and 18th will also be free landfill days.
