Join us for Coastal Cleanup

Saturday, September 20, 2014

9 am to 12 noon

The Coastal Cleanup is the only cleanup where trash is collected and recorded.  The data cards are then sent to the Ocean Conservancy where the information is used in the development of new environmental protection acts and change the behaviors that cause marine debris in the first place.  The data cards are designed to have groups of 4 working together, 3 to collect litter and debris and 1 to record the findings.  Latex gloves will be handed out, however some of the marine debris will be rough so please feel free to bring work gloves. 


The annual cleanup is organized nationally by The Ocean Conservancy, and is coordinated locally by Keep Lee County Beautiful, Inc. (KLCB) and the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF).

The 2 goals of the cleanup are to remove unsightly and environmentally harmful debris from Florida's coastlines and raise awareness about this preventable litter problem. Litter poses a threat to wildlife - plastic bags are mistaken for jellyfish and eaten by sea turtles. Lost and discarded fishing tackle is eaten by birds and becomes an entangling death trap to many types of animal life.

A special thank you to the sponsors of the 2014 cleanup effort!

 

            

We had an amazing turnout for the cleanup last year!! Preliminary numbers show Keep Lee County Beautiful registered a record 1,605 volunteers at 23 locations around the county, including the underwater cleanup last year. The event removed 10,361 pounds of litter and debris from our shorelines and waterways. It was such a pleasure to see local corporations such as Suncoast Beverage Sales, Coca Cola, The Commons @ the Brooks, Preferred Materials, SunStream Hotels & Resorts and Edison State College as well as so many scout troops, schools and families that came out to do their part in conserving, preserving and protecting the environment! A special thank you to Advanced Disposal and Waste Pro for donating the containers and disposal of the collected trash.
