Keeping our Community Clean

July 27, 2015 3:38 PM

Those of you who ride Madison Metro may have noticed a new feature to the Ride Guide: public service ads encouraging all Madison residents to do their part to keep the earth clean.

Recycling Ad

It all started when members of Brownie Troop 2464 emailed me to express their concerns about littering at bus stops and throughout the Madison community. In response, Madison Metro worked with Troop 2464 to create anti-littering ads.

Troop members went the extra mile by walking around their neighborhoods to pick up garbage. Additionally, they spent some time with State  Representative Chris Taylor to learn about laws that help keep the environment clean. All of their efforts went towards earning their Brownie Quest Journey Badge.

The efforts of Brownie Troop 2464 serve as an important reminder to each of us to do our part to keep our community clean. Thank you to Troop 2464 and Metro staff who made this effort possible!
