The Authority’s Annual Waterways Cleanup Event Set for October 2

The Authority has announced its 29th Annual Waterways Cleanup event and invites community members and groups to participate. The Authority is hosting the event as part of the Cumberland County Clean Communities Program on October 2, 2021. This event is being held in conjunction with the annual Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup, hosted in New Jersey by the NJ Clean Communities Council. Volunteers worldwide will remove litter and debris from lakes, streams, rivers, bays, and beaches.

Registration is required for all volunteers. Individual and group volunteers can visit for registration forms and more information. Registration forms are to be submitted no later than Friday, September 10. Participants are welcome to choose their favorite waterway cleanup site to remove trash and unwanted debris. Free giveaways and supplies needed for safe trash collection will be provided as part of this community event.

“There is a lot of litter in our waterways, impacting our environment and harming our wildlife,” said Cumberland County Recycling and Clean Communities Coordinator Emma Nolan. “This is going to be a great opportunity to clean up our waterways and improve our tomorrow!”
