Volunteers pull trash from Cedar River

LA PORTE CITY, Iowa (AP) — Volunteers pulled out plenty of trash from the Cedar River last weekend during a 26th annual cleanup.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports (http://bit.ly/17PuZS5 ) about 30 people joined Saturday for the Cedar River Cleanup, which this year focused on a stretch of the river in southern Buchanan county and northern Benton County. It was the first time volunteers had cleaned up that section of the river.

Volunteers used canoes and kayaks to reach the junk.

Among the most unusual items retrieved was a bright orange door.

And as is true every year, volunteers pulled out many tires. As volunteer Vern Fish put it, “The river seems to grow tires.”
