Harrison Earth Day cleanup nets 118 bags of trash, tires, TVs, mattresses

Volunteers filled more than 100 bags with trash in Harrison’s Earth Day cleanup on Saturday.

A total of 64 volunteers turned out, including 34 in Natrona Heights and 30 in Natrona, Commissioner Chuck Dizard said. That included people from Fawn and Tarentum.

“Amazingly, a few of the nasty areas were much improved over the last two years,” he said.

Dizard said 118 bags were filled from seven roads and areas — Karns, 30 bags; Natrona, Pleasantville and Spring Hill, 20 bags each; Argonne and Vermont, 10 bags each; and Alter, eight bags.

Also collected were 25 tires, five televisions and two mattresses.

“Not bad for a couple hours of work,” Dizard said.

PennDOT will pick up the piles on Pleasantville and Burtner roads. Township public works crews were expected to pick up the rest on Monday.

“We’ll do this again next year,” Dizard said.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
