We had our first double header cleanup on Tuesday. The first part of the afternoon was spent cleaning up the Schuylkill with Philadelphia Industrial Development Corporation staff members and the early evening was spent with about 40 volunteers. Throughout the day, we filled about 25 trash bags full of litter found along the Schuylkill.
