Manning Hill Road
Brief description of the trash site
Forested stream/brook, maple, hemlocks, accessible by the road with a mildly steep bank down to the stream, but clearly a heavily trafficked area. Not accessible by water, and easily reached on foot from the road. There is trash by the edge of the road where people have pulled up and dumped garbage, and trash is strewn about the banks, some in the stream and in debris from high water event. There's ample room for people to pull off the busy road by this spot. I would venture a guess that at various pull-off spots along this road and stream, near this spot, trash will be found.
Type(s) of trash at the site
kitchen sink, plastic bottles, varaious plastics, clothing, aluminum cans
