Trash around Abilene lakes has lead the City of Abilene to take action.

City staff said soda cans and old paper plates aren’t a pretty sight for people wanting to enjoy
Lake Kirby.

Every year the City holds a community clean up to help the problem.

"We've noticed that there is a big passion for that lake and people trying to make a difference and so we decided to make it an annual event to clean up out there,” said Nicole Eaves.

A viewer wrote to Fox 15, saying that adding more trash cans will also help the trash issue.
