Volunteers cleanup South Richmond neighborhood

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Volunteers teamed up with Clean City Commission to take out the trash in one South Richmond neighborhood.

Last week we showed you conditions in the Swansboro community near George Wythe High School. There were alleys littered with old tires, broken furniture, and garbage.

So volunteers spent three hours on Saturday clearing out the clutter.

A volunteer, Jordan Myers, said " It's a lot of trash, and nobody, is obviously not picking it up.. It's a lot of older people around here who can't do it, and younger people aren't doing it. So it feels good to give back to your community."

Similar cleanups were also held in the Oregon Hill, Randolph, and Carver neighborhoods today.
