Local Pick and Walk Cleanup #USA
Saturday, November 20, 2021, was a clear, sunny day a little on the chilly side. Dressed warmly for the conditions and ready with grabbers and buckets, a couple of YSP New Jersey members initiated a “Pick and Walk” cleanup around the local train station and alongside the road where litter tends to collect or get tossed away. They were also joined by a little helper throughout the walk.
Aware of the recent flooding and the problems of blocked storm drains, the duo also uncovered a storm drain blocked with leaves along their route. After an hour and a half of litter cleaning, two full bags of trash and two buckets of recyclables were collected, sorted, and sent to the recycling center.
