The Division of Environmental Quality's Cleanup Brigade will be at it again, picking up trash at Tank Beach this Saturday, Jan. 5, 2013, at 8am.
If you would like to volunteer your time to clean and beautify our island, meet the DEQ representatives on Saturday at the Tank Beach Parking lot at 8am. Volunteers will split into groups and clean until 10am and break for drinks and then continue, if needed.
This month, outstanding brigade volunteers who participated in at least 10 monthly cleanups will receive a brigade cap and those who participated in at least three cleanups will receive a brigade T-shirt.
Last month's Paupau Beach Cleanup was successful with over 50 volunteers participating. Thanks to, SSHS YEA Club, CUC, MINA, MAFEA and other volunteers, about 260 lbs of trash were removed from the beach and properly disposed off.
The DEQ is looking forward to a repeat success this Saturday, so join DEQ's monthly cleanup brigade and “Pick It Up!” Let us work together for the health of our coral reefs and cleanliness of our beaches for everyone to enjoy.
