Now that the weather is getting warmer, spring cleaning is in full effect and local towns, like Yakima, are already planning to spruce up their less-than-glam streets (my words) around the beginning of North First Street. (Look, I'm trying to put it nicely, here, OK?)

There are certain parts of town that everybody knows look "trashy," so let's stop complaining and do something about it!

One thing we could do is this new viral "Trashtag Challenge," where you post a "before" and "after" picture of a cleaned-up spot around town.

Earlier this year, a group of motorcycle enthusiasts in Yakima cleaned up the Highway 12/North 40th Avenue area, and last year, my daughter's Girl Scout Daisy Troop helped clean up some the paths along the Yakima Greenway.

Which "trashy" part of town is in dire need of a cleanup around here? Where should we do the "Trashtag Challenge" in the Yakima Valley?
