There were 227 volunteers and two dogs. The trash removed weighed an estimated 27,000 pounds, including about 150 shopping carts dumped into the park.

Volunteers chose a toilet, followed by a creepy doll, as the weirdest item found.

Organizers thank a generous couple who found a $100 bill and donated it to the Friends of Poquessing Watershed.

Volunteers declared the day a success, saying the cleanup beautified the area and made it less likely a bird, fish or other critter gets sick or injured from the trash. ••
