Volunteer broke out into teams divided among the vacant piers that surround pier 68. They worked tirelessly for 2 hours hauling away trash that accumulated in the pavement and river bank. From large abandoned construction debris, to small bits of Styrofoam and endless plastic bottles, the volunteers were able to haul away an impressive 4200 lbs of trash and recycling! In their quest for trash, volunteers even found some strange items, including animal bones, a rocking horse, and Office software from 2007!
Each volunteer was rewarded for their hard work with a delicious dinner courtesy of Cabot's Gratitude Grille!
