Cleanup Event

This is a cleanup event for the area near Limekiln rd. overlooking the towpath and C and O canal near Mt. Lock Rd. and Limekiln Rd. intersection, a little North of milepost 68 on the towpath/canal, There is a parking area at the "bus turnaround" on Limekiln Rd. nearest the cleanup site, and another area to park at the entrance to the canal on Mt. Lock Rd.

There was a cleanup event at this site in April, 2018. the site, midway between Milepost 68 and 69 on the towpath of the C and O canal, has historically been used as a dumping area. We removed over 100 tires and assorted furniture and trash, which filled a couple of dump trucks supplied by the Washington Co. government. This year we would like to finish the job. There is some new debris and remnants of stuff on the hill we didn't have time/people power to collect last year.
