Gloucester man helps clean up his community

Sheldon Linger of Gloucester, is a volunteer for Gloucester’s Clean Community and Adopt-a-Highway programs and has been working since the start of the year to clean up his community.

During January and February, Linger spent 13.5 hours collecting 45 bags of litter from Belroi Road, Brays Point Road, Burleigh Road and Short Lane. In addition to those bags, he also picked up two car tires, one car fender and two gas cans, one of which was half full. Linger urges everyone to bring their trash home with them and not to leave it on the side of the road.

“Each time I go out to clean up the road, just as much trash has accumulated since the last cleanup,” said Linger.

Clean Gloucester Day will be held March 22 and 23. Clean Community has supplies available to those who register. If you want to volunteer, email or call 804-693-5370. Sign up is also available online at
