Another Successful Roadside Clean Up!

Effingham Conservation Commission (ECC) would like to thank every volunteer and KELF member (Keep Effingham Litter Free) who helped with the Roadside Clean Up on Saturday, April 30. We were especially happy to see some new faces. As of late Saturday afternoon, the transfer station had received 182 bags of litter along with tires, a car bumper, house insulation, mattress and box spring. We expect that this is not the final count, but 182 bags is amazing. It’s hard to imagine what our town would look like if it weren’t for the effort we all made on Saturday and in years past. One more special thanks to those who not only picked up litter, but also took many bags of roadside trash to the transfer station in their pickup trucks. And for this extra effort, ECC is most grateful!
