Sometimes cleaning up can reveal a treasure, especially when a treasure hunt is part of the project. The Third Annual Des Plaines River Cleanup and Treasure Hunt was recently held on a Saturday afternoon and brought together around 150 volunteers who were all eager to roll up their sleeves, slip on some protective gloves and pick up trash in Cook and Lake Counties’ Forest Preserves. The crews weren’t landlocked either. Many of the volunteers took to canoes and kayaks to clear rubbish from the waterways. As for the treasure, that depends on what they found but they were free to keep anything!
Tom Eckles is the waterway steward who supervised the river cleanup. He was hoping to get a big tarp, a large piece of drainpipe and tires pulled out.
“There is quite a bit of trash in the river between Lake and Cook Counties. People dump tires in the river because there is now a charge to dispose of them,” Eckles told the Northbrook Star. “But I’ve never been able to understand why they don’t take beer bottles with them with when they leave. They are quite a bit lighter than they were when they were brought in.”
A lot of the volunteers use these parks and bike trials so it was a perfect chance for them to give back to the environment. Imagine if you could have a team of volunteers help you clean up your home. No doubt you’d have the place looking like it did when you first moved in. Actually, you could still accomplish that but you don’t need an army of volunteers. You just need to hire Junk Works North Chicago. These are the junk removal experts who will send a two-man crew to your home for all kinds of trash hauling.
Trust us; you’ll only need these two hard workers to get the job done. In a matter of moments, the Junk Works crew can go through your home and remove whatever heavy item you want to tossed out. Everything is going to go on the back of the Junk King truck to be properly disposed of. This means you won’t be giving up your free time to rent your own truck or drive around looking for a landfill. Junk King does it all.
As for pricing, Junk Works’s policy can’t be beat. You’ll be given an estimate based on the amount of space your junk takes up on the back of the truck. There won’t be any extra charges or surprise fees. Once you use Junk Works Chicago you’ll be hooked and there is no end to how much junk you can get rid of!
