In his unflattering March 11 letter "City Litter," Bob Gold of Mt. Lebanon says "There must be some way to allocate some small measure of our limited and meager resources in cleaning up this mess."
There is and there isn't. Trash talkers like Mr. Gold would be welcomed with open arms (with gloves and trash bags) by thousands of Citizen Against Litter volunteers who "Redd Up" everyday litter when they can.
Maybe Public Works could fund removing litter from heavily traveled roads like Bigelow Boulevard and the Highland Park Bridge interchange where it's too dangerous for volunteers.
We're all embarrassed by litter for ourselves and visitors. Many Pittsburghers are doing something about it. I suggest trash talkers join one of our community Redd Ups April 24-26 when 15,000 volunteers will pick up several hundred tons of litter in 150 to 200 city neighborhoods and area communities.
