Thompson Twp. Illegal Dumpsite Cleaned Up

PA CleanWays, with funding provided by the Rural Utilities Programs, United States Department of Agriculture, conducted an illegal dumpsite cleanup on November 7, 2009, in Thompson Township.

PA CleanWays and volunteers from Cornell Abraxas and Fulton County Probation Department, as well as local residents, removed and properly disposed a total of 2.32 tons of illegally dumped trash and recycled 50 tires from an illegal dumpsite along Frank Road in Thompson Township. This was the second cleanup along Frank Road this year. The first cleanup occurred in April 2009 with a total of 2.90 tons of trash removed and 50 tires recycled.

The Frank Road cleanups were a huge success because of the dedication of the volunteers and the support from Weaver Sanitation, Sandy Run Landfill, PA CleanWays of Fulton County, Fulton County Conservation District, Giant Foods, PennDOT and Thompson Township.
