On Saturday, September 19, you can have a first-hand look at what types of trash are littering your community, and how much of it is ending up in Lake Erie, Presque Isle Bay, and local streams. You will also have a chance to do something about it by joining people from around the world in the Annual International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) — the oldest and largest volunteer shoreline cleanup of its kind.
The Erie County Department of Planning & Community Development, Keep Erie County Beautiful, the Pennsylvania Coastal Resources Management Program, and Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) have teamed up with The Ocean Conservancy, local organizations and businesses to clean up Presque Isle State Park, the Lake Erie shoreline, and local streams. This effort is more than a coastline cleanup. Volunteers will be collecting tons of trash, but more importantly, we will record what is found…how many cigarette butts, plastic bottles, straws and plastic shopping bags, etc. Cleanup partners will use the information to find out what work we need to do together to eliminate trash on our shoreline and streams. We’ll collect garbage from 9 a.m. until noon.
Cleanup partners have chosen 20 locations in and around Erie as coordination sites for trash and information collection. We need volunteers at all these sites. We are also seeking partners to join us in supporting this event.
If you or your organization is interested in joining our efforts, fill out the registration form.
Also, be sure to like and share our Erie ICC Facebook Page.
You can also download the Clean Swell app to join a global movement to keep beaches, waterways and the ocean trash free. Head out to your favorite beach and use the app to easily record each item of trash you collect. Then share your effort with family and friends.
