Herrington Lake Conservation League members were talking trash Wednesday at their annual town meeting at Danville Convention Center.
They discussed their recent successful litter pickups, and encouraged folks to keep filling up bags. Litter bags will be available at marinas this summer.
Emily Steer talked about the rate of decomposition for litter. A newspaper takes six weeks, and an aluminum can 200 years.
The spring cleanup is scheduled for May 8. Property owners and local neighborhood groups are asked to stack and burn as much natural wood as possible.
