The Great American Cleanup in Delray Beach

So many are beginning their Spring cleaning this month so what better place to start than our own planet and where we live.

In its 20th year, the Great American Cleanup recognizes that it is each individual's responsibility to keep our planet clean, and that begins at the grass roots.

Communities are encouraged to initiate programs that fit their local needs.

142 S.Ocean Blvd

You'll be across from our beautiful beach, so what better say to pick up some Vitamin D, get some steps in, and help keep the beaches at Delray clean.

Keep America Beautiful and its volunteers have much more than clean up beaches. They've removed litter and garbage from our roadways, highways, and waterways; planted trees and gardens; recycled cars, glass, cans, and paper to help minimize our already large footprint; helped to keep parks and nature trails clean for all of us; and much more.

 

If you live in Palm Beach County, there are other opportunities to volunteer here.

 

If you'd like to volunteer in your community, you can enter your zip code here.

I plan on helping out on the Stuart Causeway this year.  Then I need to plan on the great clean up for my home.

I just don't understand why some people think it's ok to leave their trash for someone else to clean-up!  If everyone did a little, we could accomplish a lot.

I'm sure that the  most frequently found item on beach clean up day is cigarette butts.  Always digsuts me to see those tossed about, but especially on a beach.

Good morning,  Kathy. I agree that we should start "cleaning" at "home". If we have a regular routine, we will have a lot less to do.

Kathy,

I need to some great clean up here at home, and on my desk.  Have not had an opportunity to check out the beach.  I am sure there is debris from the storms that still need to be picked up.  A

Barbara Todaro I'm shivering just hearing of your temperatures. Hope you get that warm and sunny weather you want soon. 

Sally K. & David L. Hanson we try to pick up trash when we're walking in the morning at the beach but often, there's just too much of it.

Marco Giancola you're a good person!!! I know what you mean...when Larry and I are on our walk, we can't believe what people will leave on the beach. There's no excuse because there are plenty of cans around for disposal!

Myrl Jeffcoat I'm checking out the link later. We've found pizza boxes and empty bottles on the beach. Why in the world can't they throw them away.

Wayne Martin isn't it a shame how some people will thow their trash on the streets. Who do they think will pick it up?

Donald Urschalitz that is such a good organization!  I wonder if they have those in other areas?

Gabe Sanders you are so funny! And thank you for helping out at the Stuart Causeway. 

Carol Williams when I see someone throw trash out of their car, I wish I could give them a little zap on their hand!

Brian England LOL I usually take my photos in the early mornings before the hoards of people hit the beaches. 

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® I wish. Perhaps these people were never taught by their parents to pick up after themselves.

Chris Ann Cleland not just cigarette butts and oddly enough lots of pistachio shells. 

Michael Jacobs I'm trying to get into a routine here.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel we have a big tractor that goes along the beach every morning and rakes up the trash. Thank goodness. 

Nick & Trudy Vandekar, 610-203-4543 it's amazing how good we can feel when we take the focus off of us and focus on others.

Kathy I appreciate this good cause, but it always annoys me to see how disrespectful so many people are to the beaches... How hard it is to clean up after their own mess?? Endre

Morning Kathy.

I haven't heard of anything happening around here.  Of course I don't get the newspaper anymore, also I haven't heard of it on our local news channel

Hi Kathy,

This is a fantastic activity to start the spring off right.  I hope other areas take this idea and use it to clean up their towns.

People are starting to understand that they need to take responsibility for our planet. It's definitely a growing movement.
