Great East End Clean-Up to be held April 16 and April 17
The Great East End Clean-Up, an effort to remove litter and debris from public areas throughout Southampton Town, will take place on Saturday, April 16 and Sunday, April 17. Each spring hundreds of residents of all ages participate in the program to clean-up locations such as roadsides, trails, parks, and beaches. In 2010 volunteers collected 55 tons of litter and debris, including 49 tons of garbage (municipal solid waste), 2.25 tons of scrap metal, 98 tires, and 18 propane tanks during the two day event.
“Residents are anxious to return to parks and beaches and enjoy all the beautiful surroundings our area offers, said Councilman Chris Nuzzi, who spearheads the event each year. “Spring is a great time to get back outdoors and clear away the garbage and debris left behind after a long winter.”
