Bold gold T-shirts, garbage bags and gloves were the costume of the morning, besides the smiles worn by all volunteers, happy to have the opportunity to participate in the Prince Edward County Trash Bash, in honour of Earth Day this year.
Volunteers gathered between the Waring House at the new Round About in Picton, ON and the Bloomfield Town sign.
It is amazing what garbage people will throw from their vehicles; we found:
- A mucky black sock
- Beer bottles
- Whisky bottles
- Cell phones
And it seems it takes about 200 feet by car to finish drinking a medium coffee or open keno tickets.....and chuck them from the car window!
We are proud to live in Prince Edward County, with our beautiful beaches, antique shops, artisans, wineries, vineyards, museums, hiking trails, birds, lakes and memorable architecture... Funny none of those activities involve viewing garbage of any sort.
