Date: September 6th, 2016
Location: The Lakes at FDR Park, Philadelphia, PA
Haul: 2,042 lbs.
We teamed up with Philadelphia Water,SustainPHL, SweetWater Brewing Company, Billy Penn,Aqua Vida, and the Streets Department to make this space a little cleaner for our fellow Philadelphians. We were joined by 65 volunteers (some of whom spent the cleanup collecting trash on paddle boards, courtesy of Aqua Vida) and managed to pick up 2,042 pounds of trash — including 80+ bags of recycling. Weird trash highlights include an abandoned grill, a neglected fire pit, over 15 plastic beverage crates, and a charred onion wrapped in a cord (which we can only assume was a failed science experiment). Special thanks to Chickie's & Pete's South Philly for hosting us and Sweetwater Brew after the cleanup.
