LEBANON – A group from the new “Lebanon De-trash Mob” gathers for their first trash pick up day along Belleville Street in Lebanon. Karen Petitt, wearing the yellow vest, initiated the activity when she noticed how littered Lebanon had become and reached out on Facebook asking for help. So many people responded that she started a Facebook group which now has 43 members. They met for the first time on Saturday, January 30, and a group of 12 people got the job done in 35 minutes.
