About 10 tons of trash was collected for Lowndes County's annual Make a Difference Day.

About 300 volunteers pitched in for this neighborhood cleanup.

They went door-to-door to help the elderly and disabled get rid of unwanted trash.

Volunteers collected everything from litter to tree debris to discarded hospital beds.

"It's not healthy for junk like this to be in the back of somebody's house, ya know, as rodent harborage or ya know, as anything like that," said Aaron Strickland, the executive director of Keep Lowndes-Valdosta Beautiful. " We just try to go out into the neighborhood and, you know, just help people out."

The trash will be sorted Monday.

Metals will be recycled and the rest will be transported to Veolia landfill.
