[New City, NY, October 3, 2013] – On September 27, 2013 forty four (44) volunteers participating in the United Way Fall Day of Caring joined a Keep Rockland Beautiful Fall Waterways cleanup along the Nauraushaun Brook in Nanuet, NY.

With the help of the Clarkstown Beautification Unit, overseen by Enforcement Officer Joel Epstein, Keep Rockland Beautiful volunteers collected 75 garbage bags, 27 recycled bags, 7 shopping carts, 17 tires, mattress, One roll of metal springs, inflatable play house, 7 wood pellets, 1 giant wood door, 40 cubic ft. of lumber, 2 ceramic sewer pipes, 5 gallon propane tank, 2 plastic garbage cans, 5 cubic ft. of scrap metal and a bowling ball!
During a mid-day break, volunteers were generously offered a free slice of pizza by Cacciatori Pizza located at 30 North Middletown Rd. in Nanuet.
