Inmate Litter Crews Generate 3.5 Tons Of Food For Cullman Caring For Kids

In 2017, the Cullman County Sheriff Office Litter Crew picked up litter on 314.3 miles of roadways. The roads included county roads, municipal roads, sections of state highways and two exit ramps on the interstate. The Litter crew picked up litter on 154 roads and streets.

64,619 pounds (32 TONS) of trash has been picked up in every area of the county.

“As I have said many times this program helps keep our county clean. I really believe it’s better to have these non-violent inmates cleaning our roads than just sitting in jail,” said Sheriff Matt Gentry.

The Litter crew has collected 1,809 pounds of aluminum cans and sold it for $944.71 and per Sheriff Gentry donated the money to Cullman Caring for Kids to Mr. Javon Daniels.

Mr. Daniels, the director, said he was able to purchase 6,608 pounds of food with that money.
