Boardman River Clean Sweep
Blair Townhall Road - Shingles - Report
October 12, 2023
2023 Project #49

This a site that we didn't finish in May and today the hens came home to roost.

Photo taken in May when the pile was left behind:

Eleven very special people showed up to help do this project.

We had planned to clean up this one pile but when we got there, we discovered that the same people had come back
and dumped a second load of shingles on top of the first load.

We got to work but soon realized that there was more here than the trailer could carry in one load, so we loaded
what we had gotten and headed to Mill Rd to drop it off. That round trip took exactly 30 minutes.

When Randy and I got back just 30 minutes later, the pile was GONE! WOW!!!! These people are GOOD!

They got it all in one very heavy trailer load and we headed back to Mill Rd to unload.

We counted 133 - 40 pound bags of shingles and about 100 pounds of lumber.
That's 5000 pounds of debris.

Did I mention - These people are GOOD!!!

All the photos for this project are here:
