Shore Sweep 2013!

September 21st, 2013 Posted by Shore Sweep 0 comments on “Shore Sweep 2013!”

Shore Sweep 2013 is coming up on Saturday, September 28th, 2013! We still need advance scouting of shoreline areas as well as day-of-event volunteers.

Similar to last year, for Shore Sweep this year, in addition to our day-of-event locations — Bald Ridge, Habersham, Lanier Harbor, Holiday, Aqualand, Sunrise Cove, Gainesville, and Port Royale Marinas, Lake Lanier Islands, Clarks Bridge, and War Hill Parks–we also have eight advance drop off locations around the lake. The advance locations are open starting Monday, 9/23 through Friday evening, 9/27. You can go ahead and bring bagged trash or large items and leave them at one of these locations. We have volunteers with boats scheduled to pick up at all these locations on Saturday morning for removal. Especially if you are not available to help with Shore Sweep on 9/28, bringing items to the advance locations during the week is a great way to contribute to this event even if your schedule won’t allow you to be there on Saturday.

For the advance locations, THEY ONLY ACCEPT TRASH WHILE THE SHORE SWEEP SIGNS ARE IN PLACE. Please DO NOT bring trash to these locations other times of the year. Below is the list of advance locations. If you bring trash to any of these locations, please look for the signs posted and leave the debris close to the signs.

Shore Sweep itself takes place Saturday, September 28th starting at 8:00AM and ending at 1:00PM. We still could use help with advance scouting of shoreline areas. If you are available to drive your boat around one day this week, scout shoreline and mark up a map, that would be very helpful to us as we deploy volunteers on Shore Sweep Saturday. If you are available to scout, please email us at lakeinfo@lakelanier.org.

Shore Sweep 2012 is one week away! Similar to last year, for Shore Sweep this year, in addition to our day-of-event locations–marinas, Lake Lanier Islands, Clarks Bridge, and War Hill Parks–we also have nine advance drop off locations around the lake. The advance locations are open starting Monday, 9/24 through Friday evening, 9/28. You can go ahead and bring bagged trash or large items and leave them at one of these locations. We have volunteers with boats scheduled to pick up at all these locations on Saturday morning for removal. Especially if you are not available to help with Shore Sweep next Saturday, bringing items to the advance locations during the week is a great way to contribute to this event even if your schedule won’t allow you to be there on Saturday.
