We’d like to extend a big thanks to the 25 volunteers who helped pick up over 50 bags of trash on the Cameron Parkway and Five Senses Garden trail this past weekend. A special thanks goes out to Swatara Township staff who helped clean up around the 19th Street Trailhead and along a messy section of Paxton Street by Dock Woods.
Thanks to COVANTA, the Cameron Street Parkway section was looking pretty good even before volunteers arrived. In 2021, COVANTA adopted a mile section from Cameron Street to the 19th Street Trailhead and staff contributed 150 hours to weekly trash cleanups. In addition to collecting refuse, COVANTA is also a great partner in helping dispose of collected trash (as is LCSWM!).
On Saturday, April 2 Faulkner Subaru staff will
be out cleaning the trash on its adopted section. Faulkner and COVANTA are CAGA’s new corporate stewards.
If your organization or business would like to
adopt a section of the Greenbelt, there are many trail miles looking to be adopted. To learn more about CAGA’s Stewardship Program let us know by
emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with your interest and contact information.
As the weather warms and we move outdoors,
please consider bringing a trash bag along when you are walking on the Greenbelt and help us keep it attractive for all users and our waterways clear of debris and plastics. Trailheads have trash cans for you to dispose of collected trash.
