On May 25th, Paddle Without Pollution volunteers in kayaks and canoes pulled 1,574 pounds of litter and illegally dumped debris from the Allegheny River at Tarentum, near Pittsburgh. “Items we found included hundreds of cigarette butts (presumably washed in from street sewers), a fire extinguisher, car parts (a seat, headlight, etc.), six barrels, oil filters and oil cans, toys, shoes, and twelve bags’ worth of plastic and glass bottles and aluminum cans.” Visit PWP’s website or Facebook page to find upcoming cleanup events you can participate in.
