We have had another successful year of the Great East End Clean-up due to volunteers picking up litter and debris throughout the Town of Southampton. Due to Covid-19, the clean-up was held in May but was well attended with 809 participants. The event has usually taken place on the weekend of Earth Day and has attracted many residents to clean-up locations such as roadsides, trails, parks, and beaches. During this year’s clean up, hundreds of volunteers picked up tons of garbage and metal from Eastport to Sagaponack.

Councilman Martel went to various clean-ups from Eastport to Sag Harbor and joined groups such as the Eastport Green Project, the Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church and Phoenix House of Wainscott. Sag Harbor resident Deb McEneaney and elder of Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church, was with volunteers from the Phoenix House in Wainscott, Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church and the Bridgehampton Child Care & Recreational Center. She explained that their group noticed they found less litter than previous years but it was a beautiful day to be at the beach. “It was great to see many residents of all ages volunteering to keep our beautiful town clean,” said Councilman Martel. “When I left Long Beach, the beach was the cleanest I have seen”.

For more information or pictures of the event, please visit the Southampton Town website at www.southamptontownny.gov or contact May Zegarelli at (631) 287-5745.
