  1. Enlightened Enigma

    Maybe they can include special Trashion originals featuring trash from each of the local public housing communities, that GreenWorks should be including in their efforts weekly. What is GreenWorks doing to engage with the Housing Authority of AVL to clean up their perpetual mess in and around their communities??? With more public housing than we can SUSTAIN, their constant trash and litter problem is UNSUSTAINABLE!!!
    The Housing Authority of AVL is this city’s BIGGEST problem, and now they steal our money to build more without a vote. Local government thieves. CHALLENGE THEM, GreenWorks!
