    It is interesting that there would be over 5 tons of trash to pick up. I was taught not to litter and I know that kind of teaching has only grown over the last few decades. When I drive down 509 I wonder who is throwing all that stuff out of their car/truck?
    Who litters in this day and age of “green” and “sustainability” I know smokers are horrible litterers with their cigarette butts, but are they the ones throwing trash all over Burien and beyond?
    Why do we even need a Clean Sweep? Be accountable for your own trash people. Grow up!
