In terms of participation, litter collected, motivation, and just plain hard work, Sunday's clean-up is the most successful Clean Up we have hosted. And we owe it all to our #Litterheroes. We could not do it without all of you. Thank you all so much!
On to Sunday's statistics:
At the corp yard:
We collected a total of 64 Large size (33-45 gallon) trash bags of litter. They collectively weighed 531 pounds. We filled up the truck twice.
Our members collectively covered 42.56 miles of Benicia turf.
I have other reports from our members who did not bring their trash to the corp yard, and from those members:
You all collected approximately 160 additional pounds of trash.
Other interesting details:
City Council Member Lionel Largaespada scoured the Benicia triangle at the bottom of Rose Drive and Columbus Parkway, and picked up eight full size bags of garbage in that two block area.
Benicia Litter Pickers member, Ernie, found what we now affectionately call the "Benicia Party Pack" consisting of a single use vodka bottle, package of condoms, and a pipe.
Members ran into each other in various parts of town, joined together, and continued on their way. There were a lot of people out picking up litter!
