Thanks to all who made North cleanup a success

To the editor:

Keep North Attleborough Beautiful wishes to thank the hundreds of volunteers who braved the chilly, windy weather in the ninth annual Great American Cleanup which was held on Saturday, May 7.

These dedicated volunteers helped provide a thorough spring cleaning and the results are revitalizing.

Waste Management hauled away 3.65 tons of filled litter bags. The recycling center received the following illegally dumped items: 22 tires, six mattresses, two box springs, two electric fans, a golf bag with clubs, two glass doors, a tent, a television, and miscellaneous pieces of construction metal, wood, and plastics. Such items are aesthetic eyesores and more importantly, they leach chemicals which pollute soil and waterways, harming humans and wildlife. KNAB hopes to see fewer illegally dumped items in the future.

To thoughtfully and properly dispose of recyclable and other items please call the Solid Waste Department at 508-699-0501.

Our appreciation is extended to the following for their valuable support and assistance:

Town Manager Mike Borg, Assistant Town Manager Tony Morabito, Town Hall Custodian Justin Flynn, Department of Public Works Director, Mark Hollowell, DPW drivers, and the Solid Waste Department. Waste Zero donated litter bags, and Waste Management donated their service and provided a driver.
