About this Event

Are you looking for a way to give back to the community and protect Braintree’s environment? The Braintree Stormwater Division is partnering with the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM) to host a cleanup at Smith Beach on October 5th, 2019 from 9:00 am to noon (rain date: October 12th).

Each September and October, thousands of CoastSweep volunteers across Massachusetts collect tons of trash from beaches, marshes, river banks, and the seafloor. CoastSweep participants join hundreds of thousands of other volunteers in the world’s largest volunteer effort for the ocean – Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup – collecting trash, fishing line, and other marine debris and recording data on what they find. This data is used to find solutions for keeping trash out of the ocean.

Participants should park at the Splash Pad parking lot across from Smith Beach on Edgehill Road. Light refreshments will be provided before and after the event. The event coordinator will be signing letters of community service for any participants who wish to document their hours. For more information, please contact Julie Sullivan at (781) 794-8947 or jmsullivan@braintreema.gov.
