Recycled Trash + Soil = Sledding Hill

What can be done with a heap of ground-up brush, compost, and unwanted dirt?  Voila!  A sledding hill!

Cinnaminson recycled its trash and soil last summer by turning it into a 35-foot-high hill for sledders.  Mayor Don Brauckmann tested it out with lots of other happy sledders last weekend. 

In the spring, the mound at Memorial Park on Lenola Road will be open to joggers, walkers, and athletes.  

Fred Turek, the town's Superintendent of Public Works, said the 35-foot-high hill is made of soil excavated for a retention basis, unwanted dirt removed to create a parking lot, ground-up brush, clay and compost.  He says Memorial Hill could grow in size when the town is looking to discard other dirt in the future.
