Weekly After5 cleanups help to beautify the shoreline during the height of beach season

Since the last Wednesday in May, we have hosted 10 weekly After5 beach cleanups every Wednesday night, rain or shine, at Sachuest Beach (Surfer’s End) in Middletown. In the past 10 consecutive weeks, we have removed a total of 326 pounds of litter and debris from the shoreline. Our volunteers have collected approximately 897 food wrappers, 259 plastic bags, 97 straws, and 74 balloons since May! We have hosted a total of 148 volunteers whose efforts have made a huge impact on the health of the environment during the height of beach season! We will continue to host After5 beach cleanups at Surfer’s End through the end of August.
