More than 20 large bags of trash and numerous objects too large to bag (e.g., discarded auto tires) were removed from this area. The other legacy site was a small sink, just south of NATL's grid stake H11, that was used for many years for dumping household trash from a farmhouse on Archer Road. Here, six students extracted enough trash from decaying leaves and soil to fill 15 large bags. They then carried them up the steep sides of the sink and left them by East Trail for Physical Plant personnel to pick up. 16 Nov. 2004.
