Wanted: Hands to Clean Up Greenport

Villager calls for volunteers to pick up trash left after storms.

It might be cold outside, but Greenport resident Christine Giuliano said that this is the perfect time to pick up some unsightly trash that has accumulated in parts of the village after this fall’s storms — high grasses near the North Ferry and railroad transit parking lots around the Seaport Museum and to the west end of Mitchell Park all the way to 6th Street.

Giuliano wrote Patch Wednesday morning calling for volunteers to help pick up the debris. She will be gathering this coming Sunday at 11 a.m. with some boy scouts from the village in the ferry parking lot.

“Pieces of docks, styrofoam, blue tarp, bottles, tires, coffee cups, and all kinds of storm debris along with the amount of regular litter people toss at random will take some time to sift through by hand,” she said. “If we get another 15 people to help I think it would take about an hour to do.”

Giuliano will provide trash bags and plastic buckets for anything that can be recycled. Email CaGiuliano@aol.com if you’re interested in volunteering.
