Trash Pedalling the NRRT to Unquetynasset Brook

Today Mrs. Trashpaddler and I biked the Nashua River Rail Trail from Groton Center to Unquetynasset Brook in Dunstable.  The weather was beautiful and there were many folks enjoying time on this great pathway through the woods.  There were folks on bicycles, skateboards, roller blades, and pushing baby strollers.  Additionally there were folks walking, jogging, and a gentleman propelling himself along in his wheelchair.  All the folks we saw seemed to be enjoying the time outside.
Because we "brake for trash" we recovered these items that had been cast to the side of the trail...
There were 22 recyclable containers (7 redeemable) and 5 pieces of miscellaneous rubbish.

Maybe there would have been fewer empty water bottles if they had a redemption value of a nickel... or, perhaps, none at all if worth a dime!
