Beach Clean Up Schedule For The Summer Of 2018

We have moved the beach clean ups to Tuesday mornings at 9 AM.  Reason being is the beaches are the least crowded on a Tuesday.  We have several people who come help regularly and we welcome more help anytime.  If you have a child that needs community hours we can sign any paperwork.  We provide gloves and water, you are welcome to bring your own gloves.

We purchased work gloves instead of using the rubber single use gloves.  Kind of hypocritical to promote not using single use plastics and then use single use plastics to clean up single use plastics on a beach. (Say that three times fast) We also use 5 gallon buckets to collect the trash and transfer that to a can with a bag liner.  This cuts down on the amount of bags we use as well.  We will go back to the weekend clean ups once the season is well over in October.

If we start getting a lot of volunteers we might double up on parks, but that will be a call we make at a later date.  If we have bad weather we will cancel until the following week the morning of the scheduled clean up.  A little rain isn’t too bad ona hot summer morning, well unless it is a hurricane..

Thank you all for helping out and caring for our beaches.
