Trash, scrap and recycling

This is what we picked up from the bottom of Mc Gavock Middle School Trail behind the water treatment plan and the Stones River trail head at Heartland Park. Things that make you say "Hmmm..."?

Trash left on the Stones River bank

April 5th after the river went down at the pedestrian bridge by Heartland Dr a lot of trash was left on the bank. Unfortunately, most of the trash caught at the bridge went down the river when the water level returned to normal.

Two of us spent over an hour picking up torn plastic bags, plastics of all shapes, cans, glass bottles etc... This is one of our retirement hobbies: we call it "local ecotourism".

Common sense

All trash become the world's trash: from the road side to the ditch, to the creek, to the river and to the ocean. "Inside the garbage of the world"

Things that make you say "Hmmm..."
