Disgusting Pile of Trash Found in Fairhaven
I've seen nips and cigarettes and trash in general alongside the road, but never have I ever seen such a disgusting sight as this.
At the end of Taber Street in Fairhaven is a pathway that leads down to the shoreline banks of the Acushnet River. What should be nothing other than a waterfront habitat has been transformed into a repulsive pile of rubbish.
The eyesore was discovered by a member of the Fairhaven Conservation Commission, Gary Lavalette, who takes this unlawful and disgusting act very seriously. Lavalette is currently looking for volunteer recruits who are willing to help out with this project. It would involve manually moving the trash to the bottom of Taber Street, where the town will then pick it up.
Lavalette originally posted the disturbing photos in a local Fairhaven Facebook group in hopes to find some recruits.
"Need volunteers. Major cleanup needed on the bottom of Taber St. Trash everywhere. Hope to put a team together in next couple of weeks depending on weather. It does not get much worse than this."
Currently, there is no definite proof of someone using the grounds as a dumping area or if it's just a hotspot for junk that has washed ashore. It is on the shoreline of a strong current area, so that possibility makes sense.
A total of seven conservationists are on the Fairhaven committee, but Lavalette could use a few more hands. It's going to take the community to come together to clean up the shoreline, so if anyone is interested, feel free to reach out to me at Gazelle@Fun107.com and I'll be happy to relay your interest over to Lavalette, who will be leading the cleanup.
