NHS Tire Cleanup

By: Allyssa Johnson/Co-Editor in Chief

On Thursday, November 29, 2018 the National Honor Society participated in an Illegal Dumpsite Clean Up. Students rolled up their sleeves, and entered the cold, muddy wetlands along Route 11 across from New Milford Hardware to collect old tires.

The clean up was organized by The Pennsylvania Environmental Council (PEC), Top Notch Tree Care, Green Gables Restaurant, New Milford Hardware, International Coastal Cleanup, and Keep Northeastern PA Beautiful. The primary organizer was Palmira Miller from Pennsylvania Environmental Council (PEC).

Students, as well as Mr. Paul Sokoloski and Miss Sarah Yeust, helped collect roughly 400 tires, which represents less than half of the tires that were illegally dumped. At the end of the day, students were covered in mud and freezing, but most thought it was worth it and would do it again.

Karly Gudykunst, a senior said, “The conditions were very muddy, wet and cold. I honestly would do it again because it was fun helping to better our area with our fellow classmates and close friends. A little dirt never hurts!”
