2013 Great East End Clean-Up!
Join Coucilman Chris Nuzzi for the
2013 Great East End Clean-Up, taking place on
Saturday, April 20 & Sunday, April 21
Individuals and community groups are welcome to participate. Southampton Town will provide the garbage bags, pick sticks, and a free pass to the town recycling centers to dispose of the refuse.
If you would like to participate − and we hope you do all you need to do − is select an area of public property such as a park, beach, trail, or roadside that is in need of cleaning. Then, complete the registration form online, or return it by mail to the Great East End Clean-Up coordinator by Monday, April 15. I emphasize that the site you select must be publicly maintained.
The Town provides garbage bags, disposal passes for the transfer stations, and pick sticks for the clean-up. Registrants may get these materials on:
Monday, April 15, at 5:30 pm
Hampton Bays Community Center - 25 Ponquogue Avenue, Hampton Bays
Monday, March 25, - Friday, April 19, between 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
Southampton Town Hall, Citizens' Response Center - 116 Hampton Road, Southampton
Monday, March 25, - Friday, April 19, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
North Sea Transfer Station office - 1370 Majors Path, North Sea
We're asking that participants please keep all plastic grocery bags collected during the clean-up in a separate garbage bag in order to help us collect data for the Town's "A Greener Southampton: The Solution is in the Bag" pledge, an effort to reduce plastic bag usage, increase the recycling of plastic bags, and encourage the use of reusable bags.
* Please note that disposal passes will be needed to get into the transfer stations, free of charge, during the weekend of the Great East End Clean-Up, so please make arrangements to pick up the necessary materials. If you are unable to get the necessary materials during the above scheduled days or times, please call Rick Hodgson to discuss alternate arrangements.
Send Us Your Clean-Up Pictures!
