South Fulton cities unite to squash litterbugs

South Fulton cities unite to squash litterbugs

HAPEVILLE, Ga. -- Students at Hapeville Elementary School are about to learn what happens when they don't pick up their trash.

At 10 a.m. on Friday, Apr. 22 (Earth Day), mayors and local police chiefs will be waiting for them with citation booklets -- or maybe even handcuffs.

The "Cool Cats Don't Litter -- Trash it Properly or Get a Ticket" initiative is an educational partnership between the Fulton County School System's Teaching Museum South, Fulton County Government and six South Fulton cities -- College Park, East Point, Fairburn, Hapeville, Palmetto and Union City.

Aimed at teaching civic responsibility, the program will help students be aware of the environmental hazards of littering and the negative impact it has on the community.
