River Clean Up Planned for 2:30 pm Tomorrow!

The Isle of Que river clean-up is on for tomorrow!

Tomorrow at 2:30pm the Orange Street News 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.

An OSN investigation 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.
