Earth Day 2021 - Big Chester Cleanup
A HUGE THANK YOU to those of you who were able to help, and participate in todays cleanup. Also Kudos to those on this committee, that helped put this event together!
We had 45 people show up at 9 am to help out!!! We all said WOW!! Cleaning assignment locations were given out, along with water, gloves, maps, yellow vests, and trash bags. And off everyone went. Jenny brought a table and chairs, and a table full of supplies and displays ! Fran put out dozens of oranges safety cones on the streets, along with signs in various locations. We were blessed with great weather and at the end I had driven around and retrieved about 2 1/2 truck loads of trash a total of 41 large garbage bags full of every type of trash imaginable. Along with car parts, tires, rims, shovels, mufflers and even a driveshaft. Hundreds and hundreds of pounds of trash! And more! And should we count the liquor “nips”?? Easily, hundreds and hundreds.
The Chester public works placed a dumpster outside their locked gate for us to put the trash. A team effort by everyone – for a very successful event.
I will be sending out the results this week to various departments, to let the residents know how we made out from their hard work, and to continue to promote the Chester Land Trust and this event.
