The state Department of Environmental Protectionís annual Adopt-A-Beach
spring clean-up is scheduled for SATURDAY MORNING, APRIL 21, at
beachfront communities all along the New Jersey coast.
Local groups, families, organizations, businesses and individuals will
comb the beaches that morning to remove litter and other debris that threaten
water quality and harm marine life.
Last year, volunteers removed 65,000 items from the stateís shoreline.
Of all the debris collected since the Adopt-A-Beach program began nine
years ago, plastics and cigarette butts account for most of the litter.
For more information, call 1-609-29-BEACH (1-609-292-3224).
NOTE: MOST CLEAN-UPS WILL BEGIN AT 9 A.M.
