Join York County for this year's Clean the Bay Day
April 15, 2011
Team up with York County to clean roadways, ravines, and shoreline on Saturday, June 4, from 9 a.m. until noon. 
Since York County is long and narrow, there are few areas that are not less than a mile from a stream or the York River. Litter that washes away comes ashore again with the tide. Every year since 1989, thousands of volunteers of all ages have dedicated their time to clear debris from Virginia's urban, suburban, and rural shorelines and waterways. During the 2010 Clean the Bay Day alone, 7,430 volunteers removed 217,641 pounds of debris along 419 miles of shoreline at 245 sites.
This year York County is asking Homeowner's Associations to be a part of this bay-wide event by organizing neighborhood cleanups. Many communities are centered around waterways or have BMP's or other ponds within them. We are hoping that Saturday, June 4 will not only be Clean the Bay Day, but will also be Clean Your Community Day for York County residents. 
Laurie Halperin, Recycling/Beautification Coordinator, and Molly Nealer, Recreation Supervisor, are coordinating volunteers and making assignments for cleanup efforts in York County. To volunteer, go to, click on registration and then York County. Fill out the form and submit it. You will be contacted about volunteer opportunities. It's that easy!
Clean the Bay Day volunteers will be sent to key areas where trash has been reported. Others will be asked to clean up in their neighborhoods and along shorelines, especially where they have access to private property. 
Please be sure to register your event – all results will be included in the regional Clean the Bay Day results as well as the National Great American Cleanup coordinated by Keep America Beautiful. By foot or by boat, gather your groups, friends, neighbors, and co-workers and volunteer for a fun day helping us Save the Bay. For more information, call 757-890-3513.
