Garbage Dumping in Rock Creek

Has anyone noticed dumps of garbage in Rock Creek over the last few days? Yesterday I saw a large dump of trash on the side of the Tilden, going from Mt. Pleasant to Van Ness, and this morning I saw two separate dumps of trash on the side of the Parkway by Calvert in Woodley.

On Saturday I saw a large number of volunteers (I assume) near Piney Branch Parkway carrying around trash bags; I believe they were picking up trash from the creek itself and from the creek banks and surrounding areas.  The bags were still there on Sunday.  Not sure if what you’re talking about is the same thing or if people are actually dumping trash — I’m hoping the former!

A big volunteer cleaning day put on by the Rock Creek Conservancy! Thanks, RCC!!! Check them out at rockcreekconservancy(dot)org.

yes, the piles of trash are from the big saturday RCC cleanup.  i’m sure they’ll get picked up soon.
