The Stormwater Program hosted the annual spring cleanup on Earth Day this year! We were able to get in about 2 hours worth of cleaning before the rain set in. We were able to collect about 36 bags of trash from along 4 different roadways. We would like to extend a SPECIAL THANKS to all of the individual volunteers and organizations who joined:
Waynesboro Democrats
WHS Key Club 
Representatives of Hershey's 

If you are interested in hosting your own cleanup in the city, let us know and we can provide materials. Also be on the lookout for next year's cleanup signups!
