Have you heard of The Clean Team on Nantucket? Their mission is simple – to “keep it clean”!
Last Saturday they had 44 volunteers spread out around 3 destinations. This doesn’t include the individuals they have helped motivate to pitch in and do their own part. We just wanted to give them a shout-out to say THANK YOU, Clean Team!
They collect trash every Saturday from 8-9am before the Island completely wakes up. They normally meet Downtown at the Handlebar Cafe and 1-2 locations out of town. Outside of Town, they rotate between the beaches, shoreline, roads and bike paths. They meet every Saturday from Daffodil Festival Weekend to the last Saturday in October.
All you have to do is show up, they supply the rest: trash bags, gloves and grabbers. And as you can see from these photos, they have fun doing it!
To sign up, all you have to do in email William Connell at firstname.lastname@example.org to request to be added to their mailing list.
