Trashathon nets 2,860 pounds of trash
Outpost 46 of the Savage Royal Rangers had their eighth annual Trashathon recently, which involved picking up litter, trash and junk in Savage Park, the historic mill area and along the streets of Savage.
The group picked up 2,860 pounds of trash in less than four hours Sept. 26, thanks to the efforts of about 20 children from ages 5 to 17, plus about 20 adults, ages 18 to over 60.
BFI supported the Trashathon by donating large Dumpsters and a truck to haul trash to the county dump. The effort was coordinated with the Howard County Recreation and Parks Department, which provided access to the service roads in the park, donated flatbed trucks for collecting old tires and large items, and gave trash bags for the event.
