Marina Beach community clean-up June 21

Community Cleanup on June 21 between 10 am and 12 pm

Next week, cleanup efforts will turn to Marina Way Beach which experienced some of the largest accumulations of debris. Members of the community are invited to join City crews for the cleanup on June 21 between 10 am and 12 pm.

“The support from the community throughout this emergency has been outstanding,” says Mayor Andrew Jakubeit. “We’ve received many offers to help and we welcome some assistance with the cleanup.” Because of the volume of debris, a lot of the clean up on Marina Way Beach will be manual.

Volunteers will be asked to place the debris in central areas to assist with pick up by the equipment. Anyone wanting to assist City crews is asked to have leather work gloves, wear closed toe shoes for personal protection and to bring a rake and shovel. City staff will be on hand with wheelbarrows and to coordinate volunteer efforts.
