Supervisor Joseph Saladino invites residents to participate in the Fall Oyster Bay Harbor Cleanup, scheduled to take place between 8am and 12pm on Saturday, September 14th. This environmental cleanup is co-sponsored by the Town of Oyster Bay, the North Oyster Bay Baymen’s Association (NOBBA) and Friends of the Bay.
“The Oyster Bay Harbor Cleanup is an amazing and inspirational annual fall cleanup event that features Town employees and volunteers rolling up their sleeves and working side by side to rid our beaches and shoreline areas of debris,” said Supervisor Saladino. “Countless amounts of paper, food, plastics and other trash are discarded on beaches or dumped overboard from recreational and commercial vessels. Volunteers will help us cleanup local waterways, protect our marine life and beautify the shoreline by removing this litter and preserving our local suburban quality of life. Join us on Saturday, September 14th and help make a difference!”
This annual environmental initiative provides residents an opportunity to spend a day working to make a difference, as debris that has washed ashore and accumulated over time will be collected and discarded properly throughout the day. Volunteers are encouraged to bring work gloves with them and meet at the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park launching ramps and waterfront gazebo located off of Larrabee Avenue in Oyster Bay. Additional meeting locations for the cleanup include Theodore Roosevelt Beach in Oyster Bay, Stehli Beach in Bayville and Centre Island Beach in Bayville.
