Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino and the Town Board invite residents to participate in the Fall Oyster Bay Harbor Cleanup, scheduled to take place between 8am and 11am on Saturday, October 3rd. This environmental cleanup is co-sponsored by the Town of Oyster Bay, Friends of the Bay and the North Oyster Bay Baymen’s Association.
“We are asking volunteers to roll up their sleeves and work at a socially-acceptable distance with our employees to rid local beaches and shorelines 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, October 3rd and help make a difference!”
This 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 locations for the cleanup include Theodore Roosevelt Beach and Beekman Beach in Oyster Bay.
