Ridgewood NJ, The Ridgewood Wildscape Association conducted its  annual community wide cleanup was a big success on Sunday, October 6th.  In spite of the drizzle over 40 good-spirited adults and children worked steadily for two hours, cleaning up debris from mysterious Gypsy Pond.
many of which had never seen the pond. This was the third cleanup by the Ridgewood Wildscape Association .

The “loot” included  28 large contractor sized bags(filled with plastics, styrofoam, cans, items too dirty to recycle) propane tank, tarps, sleeping bag, pipes, crates, balls, lots of plastic, 8 tires, etc.  The prize was a 250lb bridge which the guys hauled out of the water and up the hill.

The Ridgewood Wildscape Association would like to thank the Village for providing equipment and hauling the debris away to the landfill, with some of the larger metals to be recycled.

The Ridgewood Wildscape Association would also like to thank to all of those who helped!
