2009 Florida Coastal Cleanup on September 19, 2009

 

Join the World’s Largest One-Day Cleanup Effort! 2009 Florida Coastal Cleanup on September 19, 2009.

Join hundreds of volunteers to help clean up Pasco CountyIt may seem early, but Pasco County’s Annual Coastal Cleanup is just around the corner. The cleanup is always held the third Saturday of September and this year that falls on Sept. 19. Groups of volunteers will fan out across the county and the coastline picking up trash and debris from 8 a.m. to noon.

“Groups are signing up every day,” said Jennifer Seney, Pasco County’s Recycling Coordinator. “We clean up all over Pasco County, not just the coast. One of our largest groups is in Land O’Lakes. They’ve been picking up trash every year for the past 17 years.”

Last year, more than 20 groups fanned out across Pasco and the coast. Nearly 1,900 volunteers picked up 17.76 tons of trash.

The Pasco County Recycling Department is the local coordinator of the cleanup with help from Pasco Parks and Recreation. The national sponsor, The Ocean Conservancy, assists local groups by providing plastic trash bags and literature.

Seney says local support has been tremendous.

“We get a lot of support from our local haulers and businesses who donate time, goods and many other items for the cleanups,” she said. “Our captains also put out the extra effort. They take good care of our volunteers. Many hold cookouts after their cleanups.”
