We like it when Greenwood’s county manager, Toby Chappell talks trash.
After all, it’s led to some cleaner roadsides throughout the county.
detailed in a front-page story Monday, the county has seen more than 10
miles of roadside litter cleaned up and stowed in 169 13-gallon bags
within the last three months -- all at minuscule cost to the county
taxpayers. Chappell and Richard Williams, an agent with the state
Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services, developed and
launched a plan that puts parolees and those given community service
sentences to work cleaning our roadsides.
