Weekly group meets to clean up Delaware’s coastline

FENWICK ISLAND, Del. –  It’s become a weekly tradition for many on the Delaware coast, getting out to the beach on their Saturday mornings, but not to soak up some rays. Instead, these beach goers go to a state park beach to find any trash that may have washed up to shore, or been left behind.

Were told these cleaning excursions produce enough trash to fill 30 to 40 gallon bags.

“If you want to get involved, just come on out and hang out and help. If not, any time you go to the beach take a bucket, pick up trash. You can come out here every tide cycle and find trash on the beach,” said Rich King, owner of Delaware Surf Fishing.

If you’re interested in participating, this group gathers on Saturday mornings from 9 AM to noon. They post where they will meet on their event page on Facebook here.
