Over 170 lbs. of trash collected at Lake Narraticon clean up

Several community members, families and organizational groups participated in the Lake Narraticon Clean Up on Oct. 12 and 13 sponsored by the Swedesboro Woolwich Environmental Commission.

Cub scouts and their parents came out to help. “They worked fast and furiously to rake and bag up over 20 bags of leaves in less than an hour,” stated SWEC member Lynne Boussett.

Members of the Kingsway Regional High School Football Team also came out in force. “It was a pleasure to see their sportsmanship turn into citizenship off the field.”
Members of the Environmental Commission were alerted to a tire and other trash buried deep in the vegetation of the slopes. The lowered lake also revealed a large blue barrel stuck in the muck.
“We knew it would take a team effort to reach these items and get them out of the environment.”
The football team did not disappoint. “They worked together and emerged from the wood line victorious and covered in mud,” Boussett added.

Interesting items recovered were two bowling balls, a soccer ball, a frying pan, a walkie talkie, a laptop, and a boot.
