Great Islands Clean-Up

9am-12pm Lopez Island, WA 360-468-2555 or 360-468-3754

Islanders and visitors alike are invited to join in the fun and help give San Juan, Orcas and Lopez their annual spring cleaning! Last year during the Great Islands Clean-Up, over 400 people collected about 6200 pounds of litter from the roadsides and beaches of the three islands, and how wonderful everything looked! But sadly, a portion of our refuse continues to end up as litter; so this must be an on-going effort. Litter picker-uppers can work as individuals, families or as part of a larger group. The coordinators on Lopez Island are Nikyta Palmisani for roads (468-2555 or nikytap@lopezsolidwaste.org) and Nick Teague for beaches (468-3754 or gteague@blm.gov). The event is free and will take place from 9am-12pm.
