Garbage ruins 'bit of heaven'

-A A +A

We just recently moved to this area. We feel we have found a bit of heaven in this beautiful Carroll County.
However, we’ve been upset by the amount of garbage thrown along the roadsides.
Last week we called the Virginia Department of Transportation about the trash along our road. They told us we could stop by and get some bags to pick up the litter.
We planned to go out Saturday after doing some errands.  When we arrived home, all of Orchard Gap Road had orange bags up and down the hill full of trash, 50 or more.
Obviously some wonderful people cleaned it up. We want to thank them for cleaning up after some of their peers, who don’t respect others’ property.
Thank you, again.
