23rd Annual Delaware River Cleanup was a huge success!
Kittatinny Canoes completed its 3 day river cleanup, using 210 volunteers to do 3 days of cleaning and 1 day of sorting trash.
70 miles of river and 140 shoreline miles were covered from Ten Mile River Access, NY to the Delaware Water Gap in NJ and PA.
Recovered were 175 tires, 104 lbs. of aluminum cans and 19.68 tons of trash. These amounts are higher than last year’s figures because of the September 2011 floods due to hurricanes Irene and Lee.
