Supervisor Joseph Saladino and Councilwoman Michele Johnson invite residents to participate in the Fall Oyster Bay Harbor Cleanup, scheduled to take place between 8am and 12pm on Saturday, September 15th. 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.
“This environmental cleanup initiative at Oyster Bay Harbor includes Town employees and volunteers rolling up their sleeves and working side by side to ride our beaches and shoreline areas of debris,” said Supervisor Saladino. “Join us on Saturday, September 15th and help make a difference!”
Volunteers are encouraged to 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.
Councilwoman Johnson stated, “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.”
