About 150 Cortland-area community members, SUNY Cortland athletes and greek-life members gathered for the city’s Earth Day clean-up Saturday morning.

Eric Mulvihill, Economic Development/Community Relations Specialist for the Cortland County Business Development Corporation, led efforts and provided instructions for the clean-up event. City mayor Scott Steve was also on hand for the event.

According to the BDC’s Facebook page, efforts from the event led to SUNY Cortland students and the city’s community members collecting “nearly three tons of garbage.”
