NEWINGTON — Tarsia Kenny returned to the Redhook Brewery on Pease International Tradeport with a shopping bag full of garbage.
Among the trash were several beer cans loose plastic, a plastic water jug and a hubcap.

“Unfortunately I did expect that,” Kenny, an environmental scientist who works on Pease, said during an Earth Day cleanup event Wednesday afternoon. “I’m going to go back out there and see what else I can find.”

The Pease cleanup was organized by both Redhook Brewery and the Green Alliance, a Seacoast-area sustainability organization.

Employees of several Pease-based businesses including Redhook, Lonza, Newmarket Inc. and others encouraged employees to take some time during Earth Day to help clean up the area surrounding Hodgson Brook, an impaired waterway running through Pease that connects to North Mill Pond and eventually the Piscataqua River.
