Hawk, Great Idea, let the drop-outs work to earn thier keep by picking up trash instead of dropping it. Looks like they would be qualified for this type of work.

Back in the day, the County maintained a wood yard in the 900 block between Mass. and New Hampshire, and required those on county assistance to put in some hours cutting wood. But it that wasn't your bag, then the County relocated you out to the county farm to work off your debt to society.

I have participated with the clean up for couple of year and have had my children participate too. I think it is important to show the youth today that it takes people to volunteer to make things better in our world.
