|Kharliyah and me before we started picking up trash|
While cleaning the harbor on Monday it made me remember the story of the Boston Harbor island that has the highest point in the city, Spectacle Island. This island has a history behind it which it starts with the City of Boston. Boston would put waste from the toilets and the trash coming from people’s house into the water due to carelessness. It was very dirty, so the people that did care said that we gotta clean it up, and that’s what we did. We cleaned the trash from the water by putting it on an island called Spectacle Island and we just kept adding the trash until we couldn’t add trash anymore. Then they set it on fire for ten years, then a few years later all the dirt from the big dig was put on top of the burning trash. Then we added some trees, gazebos, and now it’s a national park, opened to the public, where people swim and play. Today, the waste from toilets go to big egg looking containers where the liquids are purified into water so clean they say you can drink it. The solids go to this place in Quincy where they’re turned into fertilizer and sent to Florida and to help grow oranges. Now the water is cleaner than ever we can go to all these like Thompson, Spectacle, George’s, and Long.
