Nantucket Footprints supports the Town of Nantucket for all of its efforts in keeping our island protected and litter-free. Please read the following announcement from them and share it with others.
TRASH: Roadside litter seems to have markedly increased and is primarily caused by unsecured loads. Please, SECURE your load(s)! Make yourself not responsible for littering the Island. This year, Recycling Coordinator Graeme Durovich is working with two interns on a variety of solid waste issues, including:
Plastics Ban education with visits to local businesses:
Trash barrel sorts to analyze contents and develop reports to help;
Public outreach and education program(s) relating to solid waste management and how people can best dispose of their trash. Download our trash sorting posters to help homes and businesses sort trash correctly.
BEACHES: Everyone wants to go to their favorite beach. Especially with COVID restrictions lifted. Not everyone will get to their favorite beach at their favorite time, this summer. We have a lot of people here, we have endangered species restrictions in some areas which are limiting access to certain beaches; we have erosion in some areas and sometimes there is simply nowhere for vehicles to get on to the beach or park on a beach; or, in a parking lot at a beach. We ask for the patience of beachgoers this summer and that the Town and other staff who are responsible for managing and patrolling our beaches to keep you safe, be respected.
