Clean Up Columbia 2014


Considering how cold it's gotten since, it's hard to believe how perfect the weather was over the weekend for the 18th Annual Clean Up Columbia!
As part of a citywide volunteer effort, Socketeers helped clean up our designated Adopt-A-Spot, Clark Lane. Over the course of the day, over 1,350 volunteers total pitched in around town, collecting over 1,500 bags of trash.
In past years, we've collected hubcaps, shopping carts, and various other car parts. This year we didn't find anything quite so large, which is a pleasant surprise. There's still the carpeting of fast food wrappers, but it feels like progress!
