NLC News: NLC Associates Host 2021 Trashtag

Join the Nantucket Land Council Associates for an island-wide #NantucketTrashtag beach cleanup! Throughout the entire month of August the Nantucket Land Council Associates group is organizing a Nantucket Beach Cleanup to help rid our island of litter. We encourage you to get out and clean your favorite beach and roadside and track your collection to our group event using the free Clean Swell app. Together we can make a HUGE impact!  Simply bring your gloves and bags to a beach (or trail or street) near you any time during the month of August and collect the trash you find! Once you’ve filled your bag, download the free Clean Swell app and upload your collection (i.e. how many plastic bottles, balloons, glass bottles, etc) and our group impact will be automatically tallied! Take a picture of yourself and your family, and post to social media with the hashtag #NantucketTrashtag and be sure to tag @nantucketlandcouncil!

On Saturday, August 21, we will have a group cleanup starting at the corner of Miacomet Road and Surfside Road starting at 8am, with the help of Nantucket Clean Team and the Nantucket DPW. Meet us there at 8am and help us clean the major roads and bike paths leading to some of Nantucket’s most popular beaches. We encourage you to bring your own gardening gloves and paper bags rather than disposable gloves or plastic bags. Burlap bags will also be available! A huge thanks to Nantucket Clean Team and Nantucket DPW for helping us with this massive month long cleanup! NLC Associates, volunteers and DPW staff will be at the Nantucket Intermediate School parking lot at 9am to collect our litter.  See you August 21!
