After the 9/27/14 cleanup of Bread and Cheese Creek – Beautiful results!
On 9/27/14 - 142 volunteers removed enough trash to completely fill a 40 dumpster which included 290 trash bags of litter from Bread and Cheese Creek (from the Berkshire Community to North Point Boulevard) and North Point Road. These photos show the results of their hard at work on this day! 10 tires, 6 shopping carts, 4 cans of paint, 3 rugs, 2 TV’s, a mattress and box spring, a reclining couch, a 55 gallon drum, and a toilet were all items that were removed from this historic stream. Additionally 1 ton of metal was 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. Thank you Volunteers you are worth your weight in gold and more!!!
