Saipan, Northern Mariana Islands - The Division of Environmental Quality (DEQ) Cleanup Brigade will be at it again picking up trash at Coral Ocean Point Beach on Saturday, December 7, 2013 at 8 am.
If you would like to volunteer your time to clean and beautify our island, please meet the DEQ representatives on Saturday at the Coral Ocean Point Beach 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 Tank Beach Cleanup was successful with 38 volunteers participating. Thanks to, students from Saipan Southern High, staff from LaoLao Bay Golf Resort, Coastal Resource Management, Commonwealth Utilities Corporation, and other volunteers about 280 pounds of trash was removed from the beach and properly disposed of.
The 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.
