Independence Day Beach Clean-up

 

 

 

Please join us for SWCC’s July 5th beach cleanup

More than 100 people show up each year at eight locations to pick up fireworks trash on the beaches of South Walton on July 5th, in South Walton Community Council’s annual beach cleanup.

In all, they have picked up approximately 100 to 130 bags of trash each year.

The turnout ranges from three to 35 at the various locations. They are residents and visitors of all ages. One church group sent several adult members and their children.  Previously, a church group from Birmingham had young people earning community service credit from their clean up efforts. Last year local Cub Scouts began participating and we hope to have their continued support.

The bags are hauled away by the regular Tourist Development Council trash pickup crew. The TDC also furnish the trash bags, gloves, and bottled water for the cleanup.

A spokesman from SWCC said “we’re really grateful for the people who show up. With this kind of turnout each year we can make a positive impact on the wonderful Beaches of South Walton”.

At these Regional Beach Accesses:

Miramar
Seagrove
Ed Walline Park
Blue Mountain Beach
Grayton Beach

It is good clean fun!
