Making a Big Sweep at Lake AdgerPublished 3:32pm Saturday, October 19, 2013
The 2013 Big Sweep event on Lake Adger was a huge success.
On Saturday, Oct. 5, 34 volunteers collected more than 720 pounds of trash and recyclables.
This is the third year Lake Adger residents have participated in this event. This year the group removed not only cans and bottles but about 170 flip flops, two tires, two wooden chairs, two rusted 55-gallon drums, a highway construction barrel, numerous cigarette lighters, a needle and syringe, and a wooden dock.
Approximately 5 miles of shoreline was cleaned of debris. Participating were Lake Adger residents as well as volunteers from the Sunny View Fire and Rescue squad and their families.
