MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) - In honor of Earth Day, several workers with the Atlanta Gas Light Company took to the streets to pick up trash.
The employees rolled up their sleeves and picked up garbage around Bass and New Forsyth roads in north Macon. They hope to raise awareness and encourage others to keep the environment safe and clean.
"We know everybody can't go all over the city and pick up garbage but if you take care of your area and then everybody does that, we'll be a much cleaner Macon-Bibb county," employee John Skvaski said.
Field crews working jobs all throughout the city also participated in the "Acts of Green" day. They had their garbage bags and picked up trash while they were working.
