UBB Removed 879 Pounds of Trash from the Schuylkill River
Location: Bartram's Garden Philadelphia PA
Date: April 03, 2012
A record-breaking 65 volunteers spent a beautiful spring evening cleaning up the banks of the Schuylkill River at Bartram’s Garden.
We nearly had enough parts to build a car with all of our weird trash submissions, which included a car engine, car hood, part of a car door, tires, a plastic duck, a bottle capper, and the back of a TV. Surprisingly, we only picked up one bag of plastic bottles, where we are usually inundated by shoreline plastic.
We Would Like to Thank:
