Options for removing sandbags

After reading Steve Hunter's April 13 article on removing the sandbags and the cost associated with removing them, I thought there must be a way to remove the ugly black worm that many of us look at each day.

Option 1: Has anyone contacted the local sand & gravel companies and asked if they would remove the sandbags? In return for removing the sandbags, they could have the sand.

Option 2: Put ad on craigslist asking for bids on removing the sandbags, as many people are out of work these days.

Option 3: Has the city thought about having a sandbag removal fundraiser to help supplement the cost for removing the sandbags?

I'm not sure these options will work, but feel the city should look into these options.
