We first met Dave in Duck Hollow several years ago. He showed up at a Tireless Project event there. He showed up there the next year, too. And the next. It didn't take long for us to realize that Dave had a very special love for that piece of land. Joining our DumpBusters crew this year, he spent every winter weekend (often both Saturday and Sunday) helping to remove more than 150 tons of illegally dumped debris from the area. Once one of the most heavily dumped sites in the city, Duck Hollow has been enjoying a relatively dump-free existence all year thanks to Dave's stewarding of the entire 17 acres! He visits the site 3-4 times weekly to monitor and pick up litter or any new items that appear. He also continues to regularly volunteer with us on the weekends, cleaning up other dump sites throughout the region.
Thank you, Dave, for your dedication to Duck Hollow and to the mission of Allegheny CleanWays!
