Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control and Delmarva Power joined together Sept. 4 on the beach at the Delaware-Maryland line to make the kick-off call for volunteers to sign up for the Coastal Clean-up.
The Delaware Coastal Clean-up will be held from 9 a.m. to noon on Sept. 21. The clean-up spans the First State's 97-mile eastern coastline and includes river and ocean shorelines, as well as wetland and watershed areas. This year, nearly 50 sites in New Castle, Kent and Sussex counties are targeted.
Pre-registration will close at 5 p.m. on Sept. 9. Custom-designed 2013 Coastal Clean-up T-shirts will be distributed to volunteers while supplies lasts on a first-come, first-served basis.
