Thanks so much to the folks who came out on Friday and Saturday for the Earth Day cleanup at God’s Acre/Swan Avenue/Logan Field.
Although this roll-off doesn’t look full now, by the end of the day it was:
One of the more interesting aspects of Saturday morning was taking down someone’s former residence/camp in the hills above Logan Field. It was a beautiful view, but a real pain in the rear to remove:
Most years, we are out until 3 or 4 pm; this year, we’d finished up by 12:30!
Special thanks to:
- Dennis O’Connor of Superior Waste and Recycling, who always provides us with staff and equipment to make our work much easier
- the REC for making it possible for us to do this cleanup for the fifth year in a row
- Jim Kempton of DPW&P for picking up some extra bags left over from the weekend
- Bob Q and Paul D for working so hard
We are finally at the point of complete maintenance for Swan Avenue and God’s Acre. There’s not a lot of old dumping left, and we can likely maintain this site with the help of a few volunteers a few times a year.
So many people have helped us for the past five years, and they’ve accomplished far more than I ever thought we would.
I’m really excited that we’ve reached this stage, and I’m looking forward to helping improve some other dumped-upon sites in the years to come.
