By JOHN LAURITSEN Click here for updates on this story     PLYMOUTH, Minnesota (WCCO) — There's a trash man in Plymouth, who doesn't have his own garbage truck, but still covers a lot of ground. Armed with his Nifty Nabber, 77-year-old Doug Eichten walks a busy, two-mile stretch of Bass Lake Road several times a week. He's been doing this for six years – inspired by the roadside trash he was seeing while visiting Florida. So he got his own stretch of road back home. Each week his goal is 15 pounds of trash.
