Volunteers picked up approximately 2,000 pounds of trash in Four Mile Run Park on Saturday as part of a cleanup organized by Hume Springs resident Jacob Cuomo through Clean Virginia Waterways.
A team of volunteers filled an empty dumpster behind the Four Mile Run Park building with trash from the park, surrounding wetlands and in Four Mile Run itself.
“A special thanks to Del. Rob Krupicka (VA-45) and current Alexandria Vice Mayor Kerry Donley for taking time out of their busy schedules to come out this morning—I can vouch for both of these gentlemen—they returned to the community center looking very tired and dirty,” Cuomo wrote in an email.
A second Clean Virginia Waterways cleanup was also held Saturday at Monticello Park in North Ridge.
