Used Cars For Sale In San Antonio Under 5000 – Volunteers in San Marcos saved around 4,500 pounds of garbage from the San Marcos River infestation last month. In the annual fall of the two clean rivers, volunteers took 4,480 pounds of bagged garbage, 620 pounds of recycled bags, 10 tires, 2 cots and several other large items, according to the city – more than 50 percent of the collection of items was higher than last year . .
While people who float the river are often blamed for the large amount of garbage that ends up in the water, taking this fall is intended to capture garbage before even getting to the river, according to Amy Kirwin, manager of community improvement initiatives for the City of San Marcos.

“A lot came from people who threw it out of their cars, illegal dumping, just threw it away,” Kirwin said. “In our neighborhood, people throw garbage from their cars, then everything flows to the storm channel, then the creek, then the river.”
The volunteer brigade focused their efforts on the two main tributaries flowing into the river and other surrounding areas. The river itself is usually cleaned throughout the summer, when it is being used regularly, by groups contracted by the city and other voluntary conservation crews.
Fall cleaning is part of a monthly event put together by the city. Almost every month, only about 10 to 20 volunteers appear to clean for several hours on the first Saturday of each month. Spring cleaning on the first Saturday in March attracted the largest number of volunteers, around 1,000 last year.
The autumn cleanup has recently been brought back by popular demand after several years of absence. When the number of volunteers increases, the group has been able to expand coverage and take in more waste. Last year, 350 volunteers appeared. This year’s event brought more than 475.
Some volunteers were attracted by the free offer: breakfast tacos in the morning, T-shirts and free lunch, according to Kirwin. Others want or need official volunteer hours. Some just hope to keep the river clean. Most – about 98 percent – are Texas State students who “love the river” and “only want to be involved in the community,” according to Kirwin.
