Durant Solid Waste Department hosted a city wide trash off on Saturday. Volunteers from around the community showed up and put gloves on to clean the streets of Durant.

Solid Waste Department’s Larry Mitchell said he hosts two trash offs each year. The one hosted in the spring coincides with a national trash off while the one hosted in the fall is simply to keep Durant streets clean.

When all the trash has been collected and volunteers return to Market Square in Durant, hot dogs are served and the solid waste department collects the bags of trash.
