Organized Cleanup Season: Brook Street

I’ve been off this blog for a couple of weeks but I’ve not been idle.  Since spending some time stuffing envelopes at Keep Islip Clean last month, it’s been one cleanup after another.

In a previous post, I photographed the strip of Brook Street that is the original cleanup spot that was adopted by KIC 26 years ago. Pre-cleanup it was filthy.  I couldn’t resist: I removed about fifteen pounds of litter including enough empties for a bar, and a cordless drill complete with battery. It never hurts.

Last Saturday was the cleanup.  With 37 other volunteers present and the street closed by the auxiliary cops, we cleaned the entire quarter mile stretch of roadway and woods adjacent to the County Preserve. Someone brought hip-waders and cleaned out the stream as well.
