Volunteers needed for Susquehanna River Cleanup

SUNBURY — It’s spring cleaning time — and one local group takes that idea to a new level. Zach Stotter is founder of the Susquehanna River Cleanup Project, and he hopes this year will be even more successful.


“We’ll be doing cleanup from just below Lewisburg to south of Sunbury. The cleanup is done by boat and on foot. Last year we had about 100 volunteers come out and pull close to 6,000 pounds of garbage and debris out of the river. We managed to recycle most of that. We are hoping to have a lot more this year.”


Stotter said they are still looking for volunteers to help clean, “Come out and volunteer. You’ll get a free T-shirt and pizza will be provided from Papa John’s. We’ve got some great sponsors from area businesses. We meet at the Sunbury Amphitheater at 9:00a.m. on May 3.”


Following the cleanup, there will be a celebratory concert at the Sunbury Amphitheater.   Performers include, Karen Nogle and Mark Tomeo, Shady Lane Station with Bobby Evans, Bob Hollenbach and Earl Pickens.


The Susquehanna River Cleanup is sponsored by Jeff’s Autobody and Recycling Center, PPL Electric Utilities, Sunbury Broadcasting Corporation, Sunbury Social Club, Northwood’s Nissan, North Shore Railroads, Sunbury Community Hospital, BJE Farm and Contract, Hometown Disposal, These Guys’ Kayak, Freebird Paperie, Mr. Bill’s Kayak Tours, Rudnitsky Hackman & Potter LLP, Papa John’s Pizza, Ryan Lebreton Photography and more.


The third annual Susquehanna River Cleanup Project is May 3. You can sign up to volunteer and find more information at www.SusquehannaCleanup.com. (Codi Jade)
