Since 2000, the Manchester Urban Ponds Restoration Program has organized 109 clean-up events. Over the past 17 years, 962 volunteers have spent approximately 3,452 hours collecting 2,241 bags of trash! This does not include the items illegally “dumped” such as shopping carts (92), tires (415), 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 $57,000 over these past 17 years!
Thank you to all volunteers who helped out over the years!
