Two cleanups were organized, with an intensive professional tactical cleanup taking place on Friday and a large volunteer cleanup being held on Saturday. Efforts during the weekend were focused on Oxon Run and Barnaby Run, two creeks that feed into the Potomac River.
Collectively, more than 2,100 pounds of litter and debris were removed from the area, including tires, household items, and other litter. In addition, over 100 pounds of plastic and aluminum were collected and successfully recycled. When the community gets involved in litter cleanups, we know we can make a difference together!
Thank you to Coca-Cola Consolidated and Giant Food for their support of sustainable communities to fund cleanups like these! We look forward to the next one.
