NO TRASH action in our neighborhood

NO TRASH action in our neighborhood

Our warehouse is in a small industrial area with a school bus company as the closest neighbor. There are working around 40 bus drivers. They have never been educated on not to trough garbage out the window and just trashing the area.
We have started a campaign “no trash in our streets.
We have painted oil drums green and with big TRASH sign and placed them strategically on the street together with planters with flowers.
We have made flyers and talked to the managers about the campaign. We have distributed flyers to the drivers, and they are all smiles and hopefully they will be on board. This is the first step.
