Cleanup set for Sept. 14 at Point Beach

Gloucester Clean Community will lead a cleanup at Gloucester Point Beach the morning of Saturday, Sept. 14. The cleanup is being done in tandem with organizations all over the world to recognize International Coastal Cleanup Day and World Cleanup Day.

Check-in will begin at 8:45 a.m. and volunteers will be needed for both cleanup duty and for clipboard trash-tally duty. 

“The rising tide of marine debris threatens human health, wildlife, communities and economies around the world,” said Elisabeth Wilkins with Gloucester Clean Community. “The International Coastal Clean-up is the world’s largest volunteer effort on behalf of ocean and waterway health.”

Participants are encouraged to bring their own gloves, drinks and snacks and to dress appropriately for the beach and weather conditions. Clean Community will provide grabbers, buckets, bags, clipboards, data sheets and writing utensils.
