2018 Lake Clean Up
Cicero, IN…The 2018 Morse Waterways Association Lake Cleanup was a success once again. The annual event, now 14 years’ strong, brought out many volunteers and boats to assist with the cleanup. Some volunteers were Morse Waterways Association members, some were residents of the lake, others were folks who don’t live on the lake but enjoy boating here and still others were neighbors who just wanted to take part in improving our community.
According to Mike Berry of CiceroWeather.net the amount of debris present in the lake was less than in previous years. Due to a late spring, the early rain that usually washes debris down the creeks was down by 40 percent this year. The many volunteers still collected and sent 10 dump trucks full of logs to GreenCycle in Noblesville for recycling and one dump truck load of old dock materials to the Town of Cicero’s burn pile. The material sent to the burn pile was burned to salvage the metal components, which will be taken to a scrapper for recycling. This is all in addition to removing numerous trailer loads of small debris from the lake, which was also hauled to the Cicero Town burn site for disposal. Finally, there were also several plastic dock floats and other debris removed from the lake, which were hauled away as trash.
