Pepsi, Bassmasters sponsor Lake Auburn litter cleanup...1,660lbs of trash!
Twelve Members of Androscoggin Bassmasters were joined by 27 volunteers from the Pepsi Beverages Company of Auburn at the annual Androscoggin Bassmasters / L/A Junior Bassmasters Auburn Lake Clean-Up that was held on April 27.
Volunteers walked the shores of the watershed picking up trash that included food bags, rims, bottles, cardboard, and a mattrress! By noon the volunteers had a dump truck full of trash that will not make it's way into Auburn Lake.
The bass club has held this event for over 20 years now and has removed anywhere from 300 lbs to almost 1660 lbs of trash in 2013, we may have set a record this year!
Androscoggin Bassmasters would like to thank the Pepsi volunteers for their time with the clean up efforts and for the pizza party and ice cream at Tabers afterward.
Also thanks to Lee GMC and Tim Horton's for their donations!
Thanks to all for a great event!
