I multitasked on Saturday morning, going for a run along the Cochituate Rail Trail and snapping photos of volunteers who were picking up too much trash along the trail.
Thanks to members of the Veteran’s Committee from MAS Building and Bridge, the primary contractor for the Cochituate Rail Trail, and Natick residents who volunteered for the cleanup on a raw Saturday morning (March 11).
“Great turn out!” said Pete Eberhardt of MAS Building and Bridge. “The group removed a significant amount of trash from the trail, cleaned up after a lot of ‘Other Peoples’ dogs,’ cleaned granite mile markers, and conducted general leaf blowing ops. ”
A very kind thing to do. Thank you, folks. And no should have to clean up after other people’s dogs. Pick up the poop!
I second the “Thank you” to the team who picked up on the trail.
I collected trash around Dug Pond for years until I felt myself to be an enabler. I feel so sad that litter continues to accumulate. Maybe a PSA would help.
Thanks for the cleanup! Do you know who I would talk to to urge a portable toilet be set up somewhere along the trail? Have talked to a number of people who could have used one there.

Janis: writing as the chair of the CRT Advisory Committee, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or suggestions about the Cochituate Rail Trail. The consensus of the committee and Town Staff has been that a portable toilet is not something that the Town is equipped to maintain, however we are aware of the interest and need and it’s important to hear from the public on this and other matters.
