(DEQ) – The Division of Environmental Quality (DEQ) cleanup brigade will be at it again, picking up trash at the Outer Smiling Cove Marina.

If you would like to volunteer your time to clean and beautify our island, please meet the DEQ representatives on Saturday August 7, 2010 at 8:00 a.m. at the parking lot at the entrance to the outer cove marina. Come join us and “Pick it Up!”

Volunteers will start cleaning for about 2 hours or when finished and then break for drinks and continue if needed.

This month, outstanding brigade volunteers who participated in at least ten (10) monthly cleanups will receive a brigade cap and those who participated in at least three (3) cleanups will receive a green brigade t-shirt.

This is a cleanup that should not be missed, so join DEQ’s cleanup brigade and “Pick It Up!” Let us work together for the health of our coral reefs and cleanliness of our beaches for everyone to enjoy.

The DEQ cleanup brigade began in 1996 and continues to maintain clean, healthy beaches.

For more information about volunteering, please contact the DEQ office at 664-8500.
