The Glenville area was benefited from free trash clean-up last week courtesy of the Glenville State College Pioneer football team and staff.

Coaches and players were taken about three miles outside of town and worked their way back toward Glenville.

Spotters watched for oncoming traffic as workers roamed the ditch-lines along U.S. 33 & 199 and Route 5. Volunteers spent a total of four hours in their efforts.

A total of 90 players participated in the effort. Several dumpsters of trash were collected in the process. Some members of the team used weed-eaters in and around the downtown Glenville area.

Smith Land Surveying, Inc. owner Greg Smith and GSC football teamed up last spring for their initial clean-up effort in the downtown area.

Smith wanted to expand the effort this year, according to head football coach Dave Hutchinson, hence the reason for beginning the effort this year beyond the boundaries of the city limits.

The WV Department of Highways provided bags, gloves and disposed of the trash following the clean-up.

Hutchinson said it was very important for the GSC football team to stay involved with the community. "As much as the community supports us, it's important for us to give back."
