One Man’s Trash: Week 25 Report

WEEK 25: Devil’s Pool work party

Solid and fast work on a Wednesday morning by a crew of around a dozen with Friends of the Wissahickon. Took around an hour for group to fully clean up Devil’s Pool. (Took about six more for it to be trashed again.)

All told, there were 20 bags of nasty trash (either wet, muddy/dirty, or disgusting, like used diapers) and 5 bags of recyclables.
