Keep the beaches clean, folks….keep’em clean!!

Lincoln County Unites to Keep Beaches Clean during the Fourth of July Holiday

Organizations including local and County government, waste haulers, nonprofits, community groups, and Oregon Parks and Recreation collaborate to protect local beaches

Lincoln County, OR – The Fourth of July holiday represents the most significant single-day contribution of litter and marine debris on Oregon’s beaches – often with increased litter and debris in the days leading up to and following the holiday. Debris from fireworks and holiday celebrations poses significant ingestion and entanglement risks for marine life. That’s why several partners including local and county government, waste haulers, environmental nonprofits, community groups, and the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department have teamed up to host a series of Fifth of July Cleanups throughout Lincoln County.

The group will host more than a dozen cleanups on July 5th. Most of the cleanups will take place from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. IN WALDPORT, CHECK-IN SITES ARE GOVERNOR PATTERSON STATE PARK & THE ALSEA BAY BRIDGE INTERPRETIVE CENTER/WALDPORT MUSEUM. Visit this link: https://x.gldn.io/Surfrider_Newport_Oregon

“Even though fireworks are not allowed on Oregon beaches, every year our beaches are littered with fireworks shells and other trash generated by holiday celebrations,” said Bri Goodwin with Surfrider Foundation. “Until folks stop littering, we will continue to rely on volunteers to clean our beaches before the

trash gets washed to sea or ingested by wildlife.”

Volunteers are asked to bring their own buckets and gloves, but supplies will be provided for those that do not have their own.  Steve Cook & Paul Seitz invite you to join us!  The colorful barrels were painted by students from Waldport Middle School.  Our friends from Dahl Disposal will be picking up all collected trash, too!

WALDPORT’S ANNUAL INDEPENDENCE WEEKEND FIREWORKS SHOW IS SUNDAY, JULY 3rd over The Alsea Bay.  Thank you to the City of Waldport!
Please enjoy the upcoming 4th of July holiday responsibly and thank you for making our community great!

“This effort is our coastal character in action – mindful community members coming together to make a difference in Lincoln County and beyond,” said Paul Seitz with the Lincoln County Solid Waste District. “This unique collaboration has drawn on the strengths and expertise of so many groups that are coming together across sectors to keep our beaches clean.”

The groups involved in this effort are: Lincoln County Solid Waste District, the cities of Depoe Bay, Lincoln City, Newport, Siletz, Toledo, Waldport, and Yachats; Dahl Disposal Service; North Lincoln Sanitary Service, Thompson’s Sanitary Service, Lincoln County, Surfrider Foundation, Explore Lincoln City, the Waldport Chamber of Commerce, SOLVE, Rotary Club of Newport, Roads End Improvement Association, Lincoln City Parks & Recreation, and Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.
