Community Cleanup at the trestles west of crestview with erase the trace okaloosa
So, as a trash company, we really, really hate it when we see litter on the side of the road, on the median of the highways of our county, or when we hear about dumping and other trashy behavior.
As a matter of fact, when we heard about state prisoners being sidelined by the COVID-19 epidemic from cleaning up trash on our roadways – we stepped in to help clean up the roads around Pace, Crestview, Baker, Laurel Hill, Milton, Chumuckla, Jay and other parts of our service area. We put up an offer to give out free trash bags, PPE and take any trash picked up to the dump for free. And that offer still stands (just hit us up).
But we also want to make sure we are helping groups that are dedicated to a cleaner northwest Florida, too. That’s why when we heard from our friend Jason at Erase the Trace Okaloosa about a cleanup on the Yellow River in between Crestview and Baker this week – we wanted to help.
While we are bringing a trash truck out to smash that roadside waste to smithereens (and then responsibly take it to the dump, where it belongs) we will be far from the coolest group helping out.
Scuba Divers, Kayakers and a couple of fellas (and fellettes) in John Boats will be on scene to collect the trash that has ended up in the water.
What we do need is more people to help on the land-side of the operation. If you want to sign up to volunteer – here is the link!
You can also just show up to the area – (not an exact address – because, you know, water) on pioneer road in the Crestview area and Look for the big Adams Truck!

The PNJ is reporting that a 8-year legal drama about a permit to operate between the Santa Rosa County and a company that wanted to put a construction and demolition dump site has ended with the company winning a case in appeals court.
