In conjunction with Ocean Conservancy’s 27th annual International Coastal Clean Up, the East Hampton Trustees are organizing a beach clean-up on Saturday, September 15th. The Trustees are encouraging all residents to participate. Come to the Trustees office at 267 Bluff Road any day between now and September 15th to pick up garbage collection bags, gloves, and a special recycling decoder card.
On September 15th, between noon and 3pm the Trustees will be cruising the ocean beach between Two Mile Hollow and the western boundary of the State Park on the Napeague Stretch. Please be sure to place all collected items well above the high tide mark by 3pm. Between 5pm and 6pm, the Trustees will pick up any garbage collected from the beaches adjacent to Gerard Drive and Louse Point Road. At these locations, please leave all trash collected beside the Town trash receptacles. If you would like to clean up another beach area, please contact the Trustees. During the clean-up, please try to separate recyclables from the trash, using the special decoder card provided, and recycle the items from home as you normally would.
Remember, land based trash can become marine debris, which spoils our waters, impacts human health, and harms marine inhabitants and other wildlife. Marine debris also washes back up and litters our shoreline. It helps when we all work together to clean up our beautiful beaches and reduce marine debris. Questions or comments? Call 267-8688 or go to the Trustees website; www.Trustees.EastHamptonNY.gov.
Thank you in advance,
The East Hampton Town Trustees
