Republican Herald - HEGINS - Keeping a promise made in November, United By Blue will return to finish its cleanup at the Weishample Hollow illegal dumping sight.
"Our first cleanup at Hegins brought out an incredible group of volunteers with some of the warmest and most welcoming people we've ever met. We're honored to be a part of their community, even for a day, and can't wait to join it again," Brian Linton, founder and chief trash collector of United By Blue, said.
A sustainable apparel company based in Philadelphia, United By Blue uses the slogan, "For every product sold, UBB removes one pound of trash from our world's oceans and waterways."
Last November, UBB was joined by Tri-Valley High School students and other community members in cleaning up the illegal dumping site along Weishample Road that included the removal of 817 tires and 125 tons of trash in five hours. Just 50 feet from Deep Creek, the site was discovered by UBB through a survey conducted by Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful.
