Brief description of the trash site

Trash only visible during low water.

Water Access: The Medina St boat launch (Chicopee Water Pollution Control Facility area). This location is down river on the opposite bank of the launch but it is close enough to see.
Land Access: I've never tried to reach the site by land, but it is right where the Goldine Brook connects to the CT River. It is also behind a shopping plaza.

Type(s) of trash at the site

Mostly car tires, also large tractor tires.

Estimated number of volunteers this site needs for cleanup


Are boats or special equipment needed for cleanup? If so, explain

Boat access only. Pry bars / crowbars to leverage the tires out of the ground and mud.

No, adults only
