On Saturday, April 5, residents of Nottingham took to the highways and byways of the township and collected trash.

 The annual spring event is sponsored by the Nottingham Township Recreation Board. At 8:30 a.m. they met at the municipal building and organized into groups to scour the streets to pick up a year's worth of litter.

After having coffee and donuts in the board meeting room, Rec Board members and their friends and families divided into three groups, and by 9:15, they were combing Sugar Run, Valley View and Little Mingo Roads and some of the intersecting roads from one end to the other.

Public Works Director Doug King said the event was a big success and appreciated the effort, stating, "A total of 18 residents volunteered their time on a Saturday morning and collected a whole dump truck load of trash in about an hour and a half."

Along with King, the effort was coordinated by Rec Board Secretary Mary Jubic and Rec Board Chairman Dave Resanovich. Also participating in the event were members of Protectors of Mingo, who are actively involved in resisting the proposed Ramaco deep mine.

For their efforts, the volunteers were treated to an early pizza luncheon party back at the municipal building.

The next Recreation Board-sponsored event is the Nottingham Township Car Show on Saturday, June 21.
