2 tons of trash were collected, including 15 bags of trash from the basins at Channin and Brandon, 15 automobile tires from one place and 22 from another, 5 more from miscellaneous spots, 2 bicycles, 5 shopping carts, a bed headboard, upholstery cushions and, as usual, much plastic (bottles and bags) and glass bottles.
We got significant support for the after-cleanup luncheon from Harry’s Savoy Grill and the businesses in the F&N Shopping Center including Sweeney’s Bakery, Nino’s Pizza, the Acme, Safeway, Rite Aid and F&N Liquors.
1-800-GotJunk again collected and disposed of the trash.
A special “thank you” to Jack Waslyn for organizing the luncheon, Bruce Shumway for riding the Got Junk Truck and Larry Walker for carting 37 tires to the cleanup drop-off spot at the Airport Sheraton.
The total Christina River Cleanup gathered 20 tons of trash including several hundred tires. About 850 volunteers participated.
