To the editor:
The lovely Delaware River is calling on you to participate in the second annual Upper Delaware Litter Sweep April 22 – 30 in celebration of Earth Day 2022.
It is time to shake off the cobwebs of our long COVID sequester and sweep the river corridor clean by removing the unsightly trash left to us by thoughtless visitors and also our own residents. Litter Sweep initiatives will take place on both sides of the river. You may contact the Upper Delaware Council for what’s being coordinated in your area (call Ashley Hall-Bagdonas at 845-252-3022). We will be able to assist you with safety equipment, bags and pickers and disposal support for collected trash.
You don’t need a special invitation. You can work on your own or as part of a group. If everyone does “something” we will all have a cleaner Delaware River corridor that we all can be proud of. You might just litter pick your own road frontage. The brilliant novelist, scientist, philosopher Johann Goethe said it best two centuries ago, as chief minister at Weimar – “If everyone sweeps before his own front door then the street is clean; the whole world would be clean.”
I invite all Delaware River friends, users and neighbors to “sweep” your own properties or join a group. We will take care of your collected trash if you give us a heads up. Let’s make this year a special celebration of “Earth Day”.
