Hi Clean Team!!
Please pass this information to all of our Clean Team supporters ........
Earlier this week we announced that the team-clean effort for 24 September would be postponed due to planning issues ........ but due to the enthusiasm of the Town Board and local residents, things are happening anyway. YEA!!
Spontaneous is good, especially when it's effective. YEA again!
TOMORROW / SATURDAY - 1 OCTOBER
FOCUS AREA FOR THIS CLEAN-UP: From Indigo (Mata Grande) north to La Perla.
The Town Board has a truck available for Saturday.
Some very concerned residents in the Playa Blanca area have worked all week long to haul junk from lots, roadsides and lagoons - they have bagged and stacked the stuff along the road. There is a core of residents and staff from this area ready to load the trucks on Saturday.
Indigo has a team ready to participate - the roadside from Indigo to Mata Chica only has a few bad areas, and these men will tackle as much as they can. If you live in the area and get this notice in time, please show up at Indigo around 8 AM and jump into the effort.
FOCUS AREA FOR THIS CLEAN-UP
From Indigo (Mata Grande) north to La Perla.
The SPTB truck will meet Bob and Diane around 8 am at Indigo. We'll travel north to Playa Blanca and load the pre-bagged/piled trash on the truck.
Whilst this is happening, the Indigo/Mata Grande Team will be bagging roadside trash from Indigo up to Mata Chica.
The truck will then move south, picking up whatever else has been bagged and set by the roadside.
After the roadside trash noted above has been hauled, the truck will proceed to the piles of construction/landscape debris behind La Perla. This will be hauled away to be used for fill for San Mateo.
NACW/Tres Cocos residents / Buena Vista area residents / Las Terrazas / Seascape / Sandy Point Resorts / Flying Fisherman / Spanish Reef ......everybody from the bridge to Indigo - here is what YOU can do:
Go out to the beach or along your road and pick up whatever is there (there will be some new trash along the road that was previously cleaned - not much, but a bottle or box here and there) and if you pick it up and bag it we can have it hauled away for you.
After this push we have a plan for another big CLEAN PARTY addressing the beaches north of town. We'll be working in collaboration with recycling professionals and students of ecology, BTB, SPTB and Tour Guides/tour operators. We'll make it a party and you will be invited, for sure!
Thanks to all .....
Diane for the Clean Team
