Greenfield officials aren't saying that 76th Street between Holmes and Edgerton avenues is the messiest street in the city, but they have seen a lot of trash blowing around there.
Because that isn't the only place where litter blows in the breeze, Greenfield's Public Works Committee pinpointed 40 locations for concrete trash receptacles to be placed along all the city's major thoroughfares, including 27th and 76th streets, Layton and Forest Home avenues. Ten more will be plugged into places where there is additional need.
A Wausau firm is currently making the receptacles, which should be ready to hit the Greenfield streets in about a month.
