Alongside the Assabet River in Stow
I believe the majority of today's trash wouldn't have been visible to the average eye. However, I'm beginning to realize that my eyes have become well trained in seeing trash, that previously, I'd have walked past unaware. Whether or not this is a good skill to have, I'm not sure.
Because all of today's trash was within a few feet of the river, there's a good chance that with the coming spring's higher water levels this gang would have gone "floatabout". So, in a sense, this was a small scale preemptive raid substituting for my usual on-water patrols. For the time being, raids such as this will have to suffice.
