Volunteers are needed to help cleanup the Town of Oyster Bay’s and Joseph J. Saladino Memorial Marina on Sunday, Sept. 25.
The cleanup, which runs from 10 a.m. to noon, is being done in conjunction with the Jones Beach division of the United States Power Squadron.
“The program is a partnership between the Town and squadron members, who volunteer to remove litter from the waterways, the majority of which comes from land-based sources, such as beach-users, storm runoff, poorly maintained garbage bins, and inconsiderate people who liter on or near the water,' said Supervisor John Venditto.
"Volunteers will comb the beach and marina to collect as much debris as possible,” Venditto said. “Trash bags will be provided, but volunteers must bring their own work gloves.”
Individuals or groups interested in volunteering for the cleanup, can call 677-5711.
