If you would like to volunteer your time to clean and beautify our island, please meet the DEQ representatives on Saturday at the Makaka Beach area/parking lot at 8 am. Volunteers will split into groups and clean until 10:00 am and break for drinks and then 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 brigade t-shirt.
Last month’s International Coastal Cleanup led by the Coastal Resource Management office was quite a success. Thanks to all the volunteers who participated, about 5,660 pounds of trash was removed and properly disposed of.
DEQ is looking forward to a repeat success this Saturday, so join DEQ’s monthly 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.
For more information about volunteering, please contact the DEQ office at 664-8500/1.
