United by Blue and 29 volunteers joined forces with REI Yonkers and 1-800-GOT-JUNK? for a cleanup of the Saw Mill River at War Memorial Field and Park on June 10th. From a sofa and two mattresses to small bits of styrofoam, our volunteers were the definition of teamwork, as they were able remove 1,318.6 lbs of trash from the park! We came across many strange pieces of trash as well, including old coins, and multiple TVs. This was the 7th cleanup, out of 11, on the United by Blue and REI Cleanups Crew Road Trip! A special thank you to all of our partners: REI , Clif Bar , and 1-800-GOT-JUNK?
