Volunteers clear 34 tires, over 300 pounds of trash from West Branch Susquehanna River

On August 17, Sunken Treasure Scuba Center and CleanScapes teamed up for a quick cleanup of the West Branch Susquehanna River.

The crew met at Jay Street Bridge in Woodward Township. Before long, volunteer scuba divers were in the water, pulling tires and other items from the riverbed and passing them off to volunteers on land.

When all was said and done, the volunteers collectively removed 34 tires, about 75 pounds scrap metal, and 300 pounds of trash from the river.
