Pic of the Day: Mystery Man Cleans Up the Metro Parks

Posted By on Fri, Mar 11, 2011 at 3:24 PM


Some people treat parks like their personal garbage cans. Not cool. The park service employees do what they can, but there's often too much crap strewn about to keep up.

One mystery man in Elyria, who obviously has a bucketload of free time on his hands, shows up every morning in the Metro Parks and picks up trash, stacking it neatly in a huge pile for the park to truck away. The park estimates his pile is now 30 feet long, 10 feet deep, and 6 feet high. That's a lot of stuff.
