The dozens of trash receptacles recovered shown below are filled with trash and will be refurbished by Metro Public Works for reuse. A pile of metal will also be recycled and various types of more hazardous materials will be handled accordingly. Links to more photos showing the volunteer spirit for this challenging endeavor can be seen - by Steve Swartz - Richland Creek Cleanup 2/26/11 and by Mary Agee - Impact Nashville/Richland Creek Cleanup Day 2/26/11.
Debris still remains here but much has been removed. The area is starting to look like the wildlife setting that it is again!
Kudos to the volunteers, partners and sponsors who helped make this Richland Creek Flood Recovery Project successful!

More waterway recovery projects are planned for Richland Creek.
RCWA's next project planned will be in the Nations neighborhood March 26th.
Prior to this clean up date, RCWA will need 2 volunteers with chain saws, another with expertise in operating a bobcat and several more to assist with creating access trails for this clean up project.
Please contact us if you can help with this preparation asap!
