    A lot of people walk places in Bedford and the Keep Bedford Beautiful Commission (KBBC) has and idea about how to use all those eyes to help keep Bedford Beautiful.
    According to Ann Wood, KBBC’s chairman, the commission is encouraging people who walk the loop to pick up trash they find and take it to the first trash barrel they come to. Wood said the town has trash barrels on the loop. They are also encouraging people to pick up trash wherever they may see it.
    “It doesn’t matter what area it is,” she said.
    The names of people who participate in this project will be entered in a drawing for a gift certificate from Wal-Mart. This drawing will be held on Oct. 11 when KBBC has its annual cleanup.
    Wood said people can go to the town’s public works department to get gloves, reflective vests and tongs to pick up trash, if they want these. The public works department is located at 702 Orange Street.
