Can someone please tell us where 2012 went?
Last Tuesday was our final Philadelphia cleanup for the season.
Our summer results are in and they’re a bit disturbing.
During 8 cleanups in 2012, 389 Philadelphia volunteers joined us in removing 4,513 pounds of trash from the Schuylkill River at Bartram’s Garden. We picked up an insane amount of recyclables: 3,771 plastic bottles, 163 glass bottles, and 281 aluminum cans.
Our weird trash collection included: a bunny candlestick that survived the summer without melting, an empty gun case, a parking ticket and monopoly money, a child’s ID from 1985, a car engine, and a bucket of kitchen knives.
We had a great 2012 season and would like to extend a thanks to all of our volunteers this summer. See you in March 2013!
