“We found a sink, a bench, just lots and lots of trash. We had 18 bags of trash last year,” says Anne Gettings.
Gettings expects to collect even more junk today.
“It`s been flooding a lot and when it floods, it collects everything and puts it into the stream when the water goes down so I think there might be a little more,” says Gettings.
The company she works at, Snyder & Associates, signed up for the Adopt a Stream program. It’s a lot like the Adopt a Highway program. Volunteers are responsible for keeping a designated area trash and debris free.
This is the second year that the company has adopted Four Mile Creek. The Adopt a Stream program is run through Metro Waste Authority.
