The fourth annual Bike Path Spring Cleanup Day brought about 40 volunteers out on Earth Day, 4/22, to clean up the Phoenix Bike Trail in Fairhaven.
Volunteers gathered behind the Recreation Center to get fueled up with coffee and donuts provided courtesy of BRW Property Services. BRW also lent the use of its dump truck, which got pretty filled up with bags of trash.
Volunteers of all ages picked trash along the bike path until around noon.
Organizers said the amount of trash seems to be getting less and less with each year, except behind Stop & Shop and the recreation center.
Organizers thanked BRW for the dump truck and the refreshments, the Bikeway Committee, Operation Clean Sweep for donatin the pickers, Rocky’s Ace Harware for donating the trash bags and gloves, and Stop & Shop for donating a gift card to be raffled off.
