Edwards residents volunteer time, equipment to clean up town

EDWARDS, MS (Mississippi News Now) - Residents in Edwards joined forces with the town's mayor to beautify the city through a bit of spring cleaning Saturday.

Mayor Marcus L. Wallace said volunteers cut grass, picked up trash, and cleaned out ditches.

Some even cut back tree limbs to do their part.

To accomplish this, Mayor Wallace asked volunteers to bring any equipment they had to help, like weed eaters and chopping tools.

"We have a lot of abandoned areas that need cleaning up. Grass needs to be cut, limbs need to be cut back, there's a lot of paper and bottles and other particles that's just laying around, and you know, we just wanted to clean up, clean up our town," Wallace said.

Wallace designated June as a cleanup month for the town.
