Cleanup Events and Measurements

Bags of TrashSince 2000, the Manchester Urban Ponds Restoration Program has organized 116 clean-up events.  Over the past 20 seasons of cleanups, 1066 volunteers have spent approximately 3,618 hours collecting 2,394 bags of trash!  This does not include the items illegally “dumped” such as shopping carts (98), tires (437), car batteries, other car parts, construction debris, and other items.  In addition, the value of volunteer time spent at these clean-ups has amounted to over $78,000 over these past 20 seasons!

Thank you to all volunteers who helped out over the years!
