A Neighborhood Street Cleanup for the Beach! Saturday November 9th 10am-12pm
Join Euclid Beach Adopt-a-Beach(TM) Team volunteers on Saturday November 9th from 10am-12pm for our first ever street cleanup! Why a street cleanup and not a beach cleanup you ask? Unfortunately, street litter accounts for the primary source of the trash that we collect after it has washed up on our beaches. Everytime it rains, litter from our streets makes it way into our storm sewers and our storm sewers outflow either directly into Lake Erie or into creeks and tributaries. If it is on the ground chances are it will make it into our water! Check out some great resources about understanding stormwater and watersheds and how you can make a difference at the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District' Stormwater education page: http://www.neorsd.org/stormwater-watersheds.php.
Neighborhood beach cleanup details:
Volunteers will meet outside the Collinwood Recreation Center at 10am for registration. Cleanup teams will pick up litter along Lakeshore Boulevard between the Collinwood Recreation Center and East 156th Street. Gloves, bags, rakes and trash pickers and refreshments will be provided, however you are welcome to bring your own! Children under 10 are required to be accompanied by an adult. All participating volunteers will receive a coupon to Chili Peppers Restaurant, good for 1/2 off your purchase of a meal and a drink!
