Loudoun County Cleanup with Grek Campero

AuthorRichard Zaher

I talked with several people about the recent cleanups, including my friend Grek Campero. Grek is an environmentalist, so I thought he might be interested in joining me on the next one.

I’ve already done several projects to clean up the places in and around my hometown. My first project was Oatlands Mill Rd, followed by Cleaning the Stream at the exact location the day after. I also did the Riverside Cleanup with the Transplant Brothers and a Cleanup at Watson Road. The result was the removal of 1480 pounds of trash. My goal is to remove at least one ton with the help of my friends and family.

Grek proposed bringing his truck so we could fit everything in the back. Since this was not our first cleanup, we went for trash that was harder to get. We removed buried steel pieces and discarded tires that were lying around.

Cleaning up Loudoun County with my friend proved to be both a spiritual journey and a boon for the environment. Thank you, Grek, for helping me clean up our community and getting me closer to the goal of one ton of collected trash!
