Kaw Cleanup Success -

Over fifteen people showed up on Saturday afternoon, December 8, 2012 to help with the cleanup below SpringHill Suites on the south bank of the Kaw in Lawrence.  Chris from Sunflower Recycling showed up with his box truck and helped us sort out metal, aluminum, plastic, glass and paper products.  Over 75% of the take was recycled!  It was a breezy, cool afternoon but that didn't dampen volunteer spirits and it was amazing the amount of trash and discarded items we hauled up the steep bank.  Thanks to all the intrepid volunteers!
