Great HCUCC Cleanup at Raven Rocks Overlook!
Who knew a grey day garbage hunt could be so much fun? Despite grey and rainy weather, 12 intrepid HCUCCers of all ages climbed down, around, and back up the beautiful rock formations of Raven Rocks on the Blue Ridge Parkway to restore the natural beauty of a precious part of our Earth. We hunted, collected, and sorted amazing amounts of bottles and cans along with other debris cluttering the scenic area. The vast majority was recyclables, and they and a small amount of landfill worthy items were dropped off that day. The handfull of hazardous waste items we found will be taken to the May 4th Household Hazardous Waste collection.
