Rotary clubs, volunteers collect trash along Interurban Trail

Local Rotary Clubs, community volunteers and even a high school baseball team joined forces Saturday to clean up the stretch of the Interurban Trail that runs through Edmonds, Mountlake Terrace and Lynnwood.

Leading the effort were the Edmonds Rotary Noon Club and the Alderwood Terrace Rotary Club, who covered the trail from south Edmonds to South Lynnwood Park. Members of Edmonds-Woodway High School’s baseball team, led by Coach Dan Somoza, were among those gathering trash along the trail, which is frequented by walkers, runners and bicyclists.

    The sponsors for the Edmonds section of the trail clean up were Ballinger Commons (hosted the group and bought coffee/morning snacks); Costco (provided $200 for lunch food items), Medline (for the Sharps containers – the volunteers found a few dozen needles along the way), Sno-King Signs (various street locational signs), and the Cities of Edmonds, Mountlake Terrace & Lynnwood (Gloves, trash bags, trash pick up, tools, support, etc).
