What a great way to end the Philadelphia cleanup season! With a hint of fall chill in the air, 31 volunteers combed the banks of the Schuylkill River for trash and treasures. Of the 488 lbs. collected, about half of the volume was plastic and glass bottles--all recyclable! Weird finds of the evening included a full TV set, message on a buoy, leopard print bra and a beautiful Osage orange.
Special thanks to Yards Brewing Co., Drexel University, Rutgers University and the University of Pennsylvania for their groups' efforts.
