On Sunday December 3rd, the WBPD, Litter Lifters of West Vincent, some Coatesville Area School Students and local residents, came out in the rain to help clean up Route 82. The team was able to clean up Rt 82, the stone lot at Rt 82/340 and the Turkey Hill. The detail helped collect about 25 bags of garbage including tires. We will state that Route 82 still has a significant amount of litter on the shoulder that we were unable to get. The roadway has accumulated about 15 years worth of trash and will need several more clean ups to get the area looking presentable.
The PD and West Vincent Litter Lifters were able to sponsor this event and we would like to keep this program active. In order to do this, we need a individual who would like to become the official West Brandywine Litter Lifter Coordinator. The Township will continue to pay for ALL supplies, bags, gloves, signs, pickers, vests, etc. We are looking for an environmentally friendly minded individual who would like to take over this program move it forward. The individual would be responsible for recruiting more bodies and scheduling roadway pick up's. The Coordinator of West Vincent Litter Lifters, would be happy to partner with our group to help each other out in beautifying the area. The PD would also pledge support on the traffic safety side, when needed, for pick ups on roadways that are dangerous, like sections of Route 82. All we need is someone to step up and lead this mission in keeping our Township clean and litter free. If you are interested in becoming the coordinator or help get this program moving forward, please reach out to Terri Kelly at [email protected].
Also, please do not litter, discard your trash in proper waste containers. The roadway is not the landfill, thank you for adhering to our public service announcement.
