For the past twenty years, Massachusetts volunteers have scoured beaches, river banks, marshes, and the seafloor to pick up trash and record information about the types of trash being collected. These volunteers are part of COASTSWEEP, the Commonwealth’s annual coastal cleanup program, organized by the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management and the Urban Harbors Institute of the University of Massachusetts Boston.
Last year, over 2,200 COASTSWEEP volunteers collected over 22,000 pounds of trash from beaches, marshes, rivers, ponds, and the seafloor. This year, volunteers in Westport will be participating in a COASTSWEEP cleanup at Cherry & Webb Beach. WRWA will coordinate our local clean up on Saturday, September 22nd from 10 A.M. to noon. Please help us clean up our beautiful Westport beaches. Refreshments, trash bags, trash pickers, and rubber gloves will be provided. Contact Shelli Costa with questions at (508)636-3016 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
