Thanks to all who contributed to cleaner Cooper Landing

Posted: Tuesday, September 16, 2003

Twenty-five volunteers and special guests including Cathy Mayer and Holly Hastings with the Kenai Peninsula Borough Solid Waste Department, Christine Hutchison of Unocal, and Alice Hall and Rod O'Connor of the Chugach National Forest-Seward Ranger District enjoyed dinner together at Froso's. Twenty others couldn't make this special dinner because an accident closed the Sterling Highway for three hours at Mile 51.

The dinner was in appreciation of all the volunteers who participate in Sexy Senior Dumpster Cleaner projects, which include Alaskans For Little Prevention and Recycling (ALPAR) Senior-Youth Litter Patrol and securing the Cooper Landing Solid Waste Transfer Site this summer.

Thirteen miles of the Sterling Highway and numerous pullouts, trailheads, trails and riverbanks cleaned produced 13,950 pounds of litter picked up with 5,355 volunteer hours by nine youths and 39 seniors. This was a great experience for all ages. The presence of litter waves like red flags in our view and brings out the bull in the big and small of our patrollers.

Special thanks to ALPAR, the borough's solid waste department, ConocoPhillips, Unocal, Cooper Landing Department of Transportation, Pepsi Cola Bottling Co., Chugach National Forest-Seward Ranger District, Alaska Wildland Adventures, Alaska Rivers Co. and Cooper Landing Senior Citizens Corporation Inc. for supporting the Sexy Senior Dumpster Cleaners in these creative projects. We are the solution and proud to be ...

... Alaskans for Litter Prevention and Recycling.

Thanks,

Mayme Ohnemus
