Picking Up One Piece At A Time: Volunteers Work To Collect Litter In Beulah

September 13, 2023

“Beulah Volunteer. Picking up one piece at a time.”

That’s what is printed on the t-shirt Sabine Ahrens often wears while out picking up litter in Beulah. Ahrens and her “picking partner” Myrna Lane have been out picking litter in the Beulah area the last few months.

They have collected 336 pounds so far.

    See people all the time tossing out trash. But when I look over at them I can tell why. They are a product of themselves and as such will always be…

    I’ve been looking for that blue tote! I kept all my uncanned blue spray paint in it. Sorry it ended up on the road. Thank you both for being such a great part of a great community. Go Beulah!

    Thank you so much for your hard work and picking up alongside the road. Your work does not go unnoticed.

    I live in Molino and keep the trash picked up while walking with my wife. I’ve noticed that on trash pickup day, there’s more than usual and it’s flying off the garbage trucks.

    Such a kind gesture yet so dangerous. The drivers in Beulah are so careless.

    I have never understood why people find that it is okay to throw their trash alongside the road. They must be used to their mama cleaning up after them. Time to grow up and put trash where it belongs.

    Good on you both! Sad in this day and age people still pollute.
