East Atlantic Beach Cleanup May 21, 2018

Beach cleaning

Thanks to everyone who came out to help clean the beach in East Atlantic Beach! Thanks to Assemblywoman Melissa “Missy” Miller and Councilman Bruce Blakeman for holding the event.

About 25 people collected 213.9 pounds(!) of trash and marine debris including a full lawn bag of recyclables, 5 full lawn bags of trash and assorted metal items and heavy wood debris.

Thanks to The Town of Hempstead for taking it all to its proper place.

Thanks to our volunteers Joan, Karin and Joanne who helped everyone get it done!

The top item-plastic pieces! Plus lots of balloons, cigarette butts, styrofoam pieces and assorted other items that just do not belong on our beach or in our waters.  Great work everyone!
