ROSEVILLE (CBS13) – Nearly two dozen homeless camps were cleaned up in Placer County on Monday.
A group of local agencies teamed up for the clean-up effort.
Authorities focused their efforts on the Secret Ravine Preserve, which runs along eastbound Interstate 80 in the Roseville area. According to the Placer County Probation Department, there were so many homeless camps that it took an all-day effort to clean the area up.
Roseville police say about 15 tons of trash was rounded up.
The homeless people who had been camping out were given notices to leave last week, police say.
Police credit a crew of minimum-security jail inmates from Placer County with helping make the clean-up work go much faster.
