Masked up for trash pick up

HONESDALE, PA — On May 16, Honesdale Rotary collected almost 40 bags of trash off its dedicated section of Route 191 North. COVID-19 may have inspired masking but it also encouraged “finally getting out!” said one Rotarian. The Rotary, whose motto is “service above self,” tries to clean up a roughly five-mile stretch of Route 191 twice yearly. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation traditionally gathers up the trash bags, but COVID-19 prevented that, so Wayne Memorial Hospital agreed to dispose of the trash.

Honesdale Rotary, part of Rotary International, helps fund local and international projects. For more information, visit www.facebook.com/honesdaleparotary.
