Cleanup between Rail Trail and bridge to Pinardville
Just before the Rail Trail passes under the Kelley Street bridge to Pinardville, there is a triangular area on the east side of the trail, north of the Ice Arena, that has a huge amount of trash from abandoned homeless camps. We and other volunteers helped out John L. to move some of this trash down to the trail for pickup. John has removed upwards of 200 bags of trash all by himself already! But a lot more work is needed to clear the area (see the photo below), and to discourage its use as a camping area — follow our events calendar and the page for the West Side Cleanup Volunteers for updates.
