Local Group Removes Tons of Litter from Downtown

"Downtown Vision Inc. (DVI), the group behind the First Wednesday Art Walk and Eat Up Downtown, says they've been working to clean up dozens of blocks of downtown Jacksonville."

"In their report covering the first half of the year, DVI says they have pulled weeds from sidewalks along more than 65 blocks and more than 500 tree beds. They also put mulch in the tree beds."

"But here's the biggie: DVI says they have picked up more than 7,000 pounds of litter from Downtown -- 3.5 tons!"

"The pair work seven days a week, six hours a day, picking up the the bits and pieces of trash that city crews can't get to."
