On November 4th, United by Blue celebrated Love Your Park day by hosting a Delaware River cleanup at Frankford Boat Launch along the K &T trail with Delaware River City Corp., Philadelphia Water Dept., The Philadelphia Wooden Boat Factory, and honeygrow!
116 volunteers joined in on the efforts. They stretched out across the river bank and trail from Frankford Boat Launch to the Tacony Palmyra Bridge collecting debris washed ashore. In just 2.5 hours they were able to collect 3,085 lbs of trash and recycling! In addition to the countless, plastic  bottles, straws, and tires, they uncovered some weird trash, as well, including a high-heeled boot, an ID card, a baseball, and toy frog!
