Video Tour After 4/5/14 spring cleanup of Bread and Cheese Creek - North Point Road - Pt. 3

These photos show the results of our wonderful volunteer’s hard work cleaning up the Historic Bread and Cheese Creek. On 4/5/14 - 167 volunteers removed 285 trash bags of litter from Bread and Cheese Creek and North Point Road Including 14 shopping carts, 11 steel pipes, 8 tires, 4 rugs, 2 scooters, a mattress, an office chair, a 55 gallon drum, and an old fashioned hair dryer (the type you sit under). Enough trash was pulled from the creek to completely fill a forty yard dumpster! Additionally 1.25 tons of metal were pulled from the creek and will be recycled with the money going toward helping to pay for our next cleanup. All food left over will be donated to Rita’s Table a local food kitchen dedicated to helping feed the needy of Dundalk.

 

Our cleanup was run as part of Project Clean Stream under the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay along with American Rivers, and Trash Free Maryland. Thank you INCREDIBLE volunteers! This was our largest turn out yet! YOU are the reason we are so successful and your belief in our community and the environment is what keeps us going! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! We truly could not do it without you! Look at the huge difference you helped to make!
