Supervisor Reilich announced today that the Town of Greece will be participating in the 2015 Beach Cleanup day on Saturday, September 19th from 9AM until Noon. This event is an annual cleanup of beaches all over New York State. This is one of New York State’s most important environmental events of the year, and the Town of Greece is happy to participate.
This event is part of the larger International Coastal Clean-up sponsored by the American Littoral Society (ALS). Each year this event removes trash from shorelines all over New York State; 80 tons of trash in 2014 alone. There are currently plans to have groups tend to the Payne Beach area, the Braddock Bay area, and along the lake shore. However, more volunteers are always welcome, and Supervisor Reilich would like to encourage as many folks as possible to assist in this effort.Upon registering for Beach Cleanup Day, volunteers will receive an email with further instructions on where to meet to receive assignments and supplies, as well as go over safety precautions.
Online registration for the 2015 Beach Cleanup Day is available under the Special Events section of our website. For further inquiries, please contact Scott Copey.
