22nd Annual Christina River Cleanup a Success

The results of the April 6, 2013 cleanup of Naamans Creek held in connection with the 22nd Annual Christina River Cleanup are as follows.

In the entire Christina River Cleanup, approximately 18 tons of trash was collected.

The Naamans Creek contingent numbered 60 volunteers and picked up about 1.75 ton including 14 tires, 14 shopping carts, two bicycles, a windshield, boards, clothing, liquor bottles and real estate signs. In addition, six (6) shopping carts were cleaned and returned to the ACME.

Most of the trash was plastic bags, food containers, plastic bottles and cans… so there was a lot of lightweight material in that 1.75 tons.

Councilman John Cartier and State Representative Dennis Williams participated in the Cleanup on Naamans Creek.

1-800-Got-Junk took two truck loads of “junk” to the landfill.

Lunch was supplied by Harry’s, ACME, Safeway, F&N Liquors, Sweeney’s and Rite Aid. Thanks to these wonderful supporters!
