There’s no better way to show your community that you care other than getting involved. The 35th annual Delaware Coastal Cleanup is looking for volunteers. This year’s event is scheduled for September 17th. In addition, there is a month long state-wide cleanup campaign.

The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) is hosting the event at 39 sites. Volunteers can register on the DNREC Website and are encouraged to do so early. Space is limited for the of volunteers at each site.

DNREC suggests several ways to make a difference all year long.

Pick up trash near your home to keep your neighborhood clean.

Follow a carry-in/carry out plan and take all trash with you when visiting outdoor spaces, like Delaware State Parks, wildlife areas, and reserves, or county and local parks.

Pack a disposable bag and rubber gloves when you take a walk, go for a hike, go hunting or fishing, etc. to collect and carry out trash you find along the way.

Recycle applicable items through in-home recycling or designated drop-off locations. Learn more at de.gov/recycling
