Lake Erie Beach cleanup scheduled for next Saturday

The fourth annual Lake Erie Beach cleanup is scheduled for 9 to 11 a.m. next Saturday

Lake Erie Beach Fire Hall, 9483 Lakeshore Road, will host the event, mobilizing volunteers in the morning and serving as the drop-off location for the trash collected throughout the day. The cleanup will target vacant lots, parks and recreational areas, and streets that are major thoroughfares in the beach area. The cleanup also includes the neighborhood and commercial area along Old Lakeshore Road.

St. Vincent DePaul and the Western New York Coaltion for Donated Goods will be there to accept clothes and household goods for repurposing. The Lake Erie Beach Neighborhood Revitalization Task Force, Town of Evans and Lake Erie Beach Fire Company are coordinating the event.

The task force needs volunteers. Trash bags, rubber gloves, safety vests, water and food will be provided. Participants should bring work gloves and sunscreen. Contact Lori Szewczyk at 549-3915 for more information.
