The Sheriff’s Office of Nevada County, Cali. teamed up with Hospitality House and over 60 volunteers to help clean up nine homeless encampments in the Grass Valley area earlier this week.

With the help of volunteers, the teams were able to fill two 40-yard dumpsters and three 6-yard dumpsters. In roughly five hours, the crews removed almost 100 yards of waste from the area.

The Nevada County Sheriff’s Office began the cleanup after learning about illegal camping bordering the city and county. The sheriff’s office invited city and county property owners to listen to their concerns and solutions.
