A small group of enthusiastic volunteers had a fun time cleaning up the woods at Pondside Park and by the HP Swim Club today. These areas were last cleaned in April 2013, but the seven adults and five children managed to haul quite a bit out for proper disposal.
Pondside Park had a fair number of recyclables (Bud was especially popular) on either side of the road and by the walking path, but among the other items we picked up were a tire, a wooden shipping pallet, a sleeping bag, a can of corn, a toothbrush, a plastic bottle of Glade air freshener (?! in the great outdoors), and a rusting car door (?!), car wheel, and gas tank as well as a car battery…we filled two barrels with trash and one with recyclables.
