NAPS Highway Cleanup Clears 18+ Bags of Trash
A crew of 15 volunteers cleared the roadsides and gullies during the Fall 2022 NAPS Highway Cleanup, Sunday, Oct. 16th. Eighteen large bags of trash plus several oversized items were disposed of or recycled from Route 200 between Wicomico Church and Tipers Bridge.
Highway clean-up volunteers (from left): Gena McKinley, KJ Ball, Emileah Weatherford, Ashton Burns, Quinton Jones, Karen Baker, James Baker, Alice Imbur, Don Imbur, Mary Martha Stewart, Sandy Hedlund, Janice Mahoney, John Hedlund, Bonnie Reif, and Mike Ahart.
“It was a good crew,” said team leader Alice Imbur, noting that two of the teams filled 5 bags each and recovered several pounds of scrap metal to recycle.
Roadside trash is not just an eyesore. If not removed from the roadsides, it eventually is washed down into our creeks and rivers, adversely affecting wildlife and the water quality of the Chesapeake Bay and tributaries.
