The Euclid Beach cleanup season is off to a great start!
On Saturday March 19th, volunteers from The Collinwood Masonic Lodge #582, a Women's Rugby Team, General Electric employees, college and high school students and neighborhood residents came together to clean and screen the Euclid Beach! This was our first beach cleanup of 2011 and we managed to collect an absolute hands down record of 234 pounds of trash, over 75 pounds of which was recycled! Thanks to these hard-working volunteers, we collected over 850 cigar tips, close to 200 plastic bags bottles and cans and well over 150 plastic and paper bags! The most "unique" items collected included a freezer door and a construction barrel!
But this is only the beginning of a long and active year ahead! With summer around the corner, we are going to need your help! Now more than ever join volunteers just like you this summer along with 7,000+ other volunteers across the Great Lakes as we tackle some of the toughest months of the year for beach and water quality! Remember, our Great Lakes constitute over 1/5 of the earth's fresh surface water. Let’s at least take care of the beaches in our own community!
Our next beach cleanup will be on Saturday April 16th from 10am-12pm at Euclid Beach Park!
Also, join us for a volunteer meeting on Tuesday April 19th at 6pm at the Arts Collinwood Community Center (397 East 156th Street-The community center is located behind the Cafe Arts Collinwood)
