Upper Pottsgrove’s Rubbish Brigade met on Saturday, Oct. 25 at 9 a.m.
They so this twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall, according to Township Manager Carol Lewis.
A total of 22 volunteers put in 3 ½ hours and covered 90 percent of the township.
They collected just under 1,000 pounds of trash in 33 trash bags.
The Rubbish Brigade has been doing this for four years and they are noticing a decrease in the amount of trash on the roads.
This may be due in part to residents who pick up trash while walking or to people taking note of the clean-up efforts.
