Family cleans up part of litter in field after NT story, online post

Amy Flanery
Lifestyle Editor

The “hundreds or thousands” of plastic bags reported Wednesday to be littering a field south of Peru’s Midtown Road between Route 251 and North Peoria Street disappeared the next day.

Alice Bogatitus of St. Margaret’s Center for Physical Rehabilitation, located on Midtown Road, said Friday much of the field had been cleaned up. Bogatitus said she noticed three or four “young boys” out picking up the bags, and she wanted to thank them.

“I don’t know who they were,” Bogatitus said. “They worked hard to get that picked up, but it looks nice now. They did a good job.”

NewsTribune Facebook fan Amber Robinson said she and her sons Tyler, Aiden and Liam collected seven garbage bags full of plastic grocery bags after school on Thursday.

“There is still lots to be done,” she said, “but you can only work a five- and two-year-old so long.”

Yeah to the Robinsons for good parenting skills. It's always great to give back to the community. We should all do more.
