Date: March 1st, 2016
Location: Bartrams Garden, Philadelphia, PA
Haul: 3,372 12,927 lbs.
A winter's worth of trash was waiting for us and 100 volunteers at Bartrams Garden and along the Schuylkill River. Volunteers picked up a large volume of recyclables and styrofoam, and Philadelphia Water helped truck away over 4,000 lbs of construction debris and 130 tires. Weird trash finds included a check (cashed!) for $30,000, a terrarium in a bottle, deer antler, and a TV.
