A group of neighbors in northeast Albuquerque are trying their best to make the city a more beautiful place.
Mary Erwin, who lives in the Alvarado neighborhood, started leading the charge a few weeks ago.
"I hate seeing litter everywhere,” Erwin said. “And when the wind blows, it doesn't matter what neighborhood you're in, the trash cans blow open, trash just gets blown everywhere."
She said she saw a neighbor’s post on the Nextdoor app about a dirty section of a bike path near Juan Tabo. She pitched in right away.
"I'm a big fan of maybe not saying 'they should clean it up' but when I see a problem, maybe I should do something about it,” said Erwin. “It seems like other people feel the same way."
She made her own post on the Nextdoor app, and “The Guerilla Garbage Brigade” was born.
Eighteen of her neighbors showed up this past weekend for the second scheduled clean up near the Tom Bolack Park.
