A Short Patrol on the Assabet River
With the end of Daylight Saving Time only 11 days away, I felt fortunate to get in a post-work trash patrol on the Assabet River, this afternoon. In the photo at left, I'm emerging from the shadow of Nashawtuc Hill and approaching the confluence of the Sudbury and Concord Rivers at Egg Rock.
There was a fair amount of trash in only a 1.5 mile section of river.
Total was 38: 17 recyclable containers (3 redeemable) and 21 pieces of miscellaneous rubbish such as styrofoam, plastic, a spray paint can, and nip bottles. YTD total = 5890
