Brief description of the trash site

Mostly forested flat, there is a steep slope down to the Chicopee River, most trash in the upper flat area. Access from Water St. Would not need a large group, however there are large items such as a couch and big mattresses that would require able bodied people to carry. Also would need a larger vehicle to transport the big items.
