Join the Nantucket Land Council Associates for an island-wide (and beyond) #trashtag (and socially distanced) beach cleanup from August 4-10.
The Nantucket Land Council Associates group is organizing a Nantucket Beach Cleanup with a twist. Instead of gathering together, we ask you to join us any time that works best for you, on any beach that you choose. Simply bring your gloves and bags to a beach (or trail or street) near you any time during the week of August 4-10, 2020 and collect the trash you find there. Once you’ve filled your bag, take a picture of yourself and your family, and post to social media with the hashtag #nantuckettrashtag and be sure to tag @nantucketlandcouncil.
We can join together and make a difference. We will repost and share your trashtags and collectively we will have a huge impact! Mark your calendar and join us for this island-wide beach cleanup.
A few environmentally friendly tips thanks to the Nantucket DPW:
– Wear gardening gloves, dishwashing gloves, or any washable reusable gloves rather than plastic disposable gloves
– Use brown Stop & Shop paper bags (double bagged works best) rather than a plastic clear bag.
– Before taking off your gloves, sort your trash into recyclable plastic, aluminum, glass, compostable or non-compostable/non-recyclable items and then dispose of in your household recycling/compost/refuse.
