Great Saw Mill River Cleanup 2019 - Liberty Coca-Cola Site, Elmsford
April 14, 2019
I volunteered at this year's Great Saw Mill River Cleanup, organized by Groundwork Hudson Valley. I previously participated in 2016, clearing invasive vines in around Farragut Avenue in Hastings.
Each year's cleanup event takes place at 8-10 different locations along the Saw Mill River. This year I chose the Liberty Coca-Cola Site in Elmsford.
I personally found tennis, soccer, golf, whiffle, and softball balls; two commercial garbage can lids; a road cone and part of a barrier; over two dozen plastic pots for plants; a plastic crate; food, snack, candy, and condom wrappers; rubber shoe soles; a pull out bed; a couch with cushions; steel pipes; a gasoline container filled with an unknown liquid; a rusted out shell of a car; tires galore; and bags full of plastic and glass containers.
Yes, I did stop to take a lot of pictures because I think it's important to spread the word and the message: litter sucks!
