Don Scorzafave of Scott is half-right in his April 5 letter "Unscenic Trash." Highway trash is appalling. But many of us, including Don, do volunteer. People who care must pick up for people who don't care and litter.

On Spring/Earth Day Redd-Up weekend (April 19-22), thousands of Pittsburgh-area volunteers will pick up litter on a thousand streets. This is a recipe for success:

Mix in three cigarette butts.

Add a slice of pepperoni pizza.

Stir in 3 tablespoons of water from a plastic bottle.

Toss in some ATM and parking receipts.

Add a Big Mac wrapper and fries.
