A once beautiful stretch of forest by the Susquehanna River has turned into a dumping ground of disgusting garbage.
An OSN investigation has revealed that people have been disposing they’re trash near the river in the Isle of Que: including plastic bags, smashed bottles, bed posts, and even a broken television.
Selinsgrove Borough Manager Paul Williams told the OSN that Penn Township is responsible for keeping the area clean. Penn Township Supervisors were not immediately available for comment.
However, Selinsgrove residents sure had plenty to say when showed images of the garbage.
“ I think it’d be really great if we had more recycling bins out in public. So it’s more accessible for people to recycle, instead of just throw it on the ground,” Selinsgrove resident, Mickey Sanders told the Orange Street News.
But the OSN intends to clean up this mess!
On Saturday February 11th at 2:30pm the OSN will start at the boat launch in the Isle of Que with garage bags and will walk the mile stretch picking up trash. Anybody who is interested in helping can meet us down there. Selinsgrove resident Brian Groce has agreed to lend his pick up truck for trash removal. Snacks and drinks will be provided by the OSN to anyone who shows up to help out.
