Concord River Shore Patrol in Bedford
This morning I returned to the Bedford Boat Ramp near where Route 225 crosses over the Concord River. My objective, pictured at left, was the 6 bags of household trash I'd seen there on Tuesday afternoon. At that time, I didn't have enough bags to contain the mess and subsequently notified the Bedford DPW about the dumping. However, realizing that the DPW is most likely tied up with post-storm cleanup, I decided to take care of this mess myself.
After separating recyclables from rubbish, I was left with these 2 piles...
After counting and bagging, the site looked like this...
There were 82 recyclable containers and 170 pieces of miscellaneous rubbish. YTD total = 6415
Unfortunately, there was no evidence indicating the identity of the culprit.
