Better Farm teamed up with the Redwood Neighborhood Association this year to pick up trash along Redwood's main thoroughfare in an annual effort to beautify the hamlet.

Participants bagged and sorted garbage and recyclables found along the main thoroughfare of the hamlet's downtown. This year marked the lowest amount of trash picked up—meaning there were fewer people littering throughout the year, and a bigger ongoing effort among residents to keep things looking great.

Returnable plastic, glass, and aluminum cans will benefit the Redwood Neighborhood Association's ongoing community efforts. To get involved, stop in at group's next meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 14, at the St. Francis Xavier Parish on Route 37 in downtown Redwood.
