St. Mary’s Island Clean-Up Campaign
September 27, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Living River Foundation & Chatham Maritime Trust have announced the next clean-up campaign.
It will take place on Friday 27th September from 9.30 am to 11.30 am on the west of the Island.
Register your attendance with Living River Foundation. The meeting point for participants is St. Mary’s Island Community Centre at 9.30 am.
Pickers to collect the litter are needed as well as surveyors to help record what is being collected, so all abilities welcome. They are now separating out hard plastics, particularly HDPE which is high density polyethylene used in the production of plastic bottles and corrosion-resistant piping, which will be sent to be made into a new addition to the marina to help collect the litter that can’t be stopped getting there.
Suitable clothing should be worn depending on the weather and sunscreen/protection as you will be outside for several hours.
If you wish to participate in one of the above clean-ups then email ">Liver River Foundation.
