Corporate Hands: International Coastal Cleanup in St Thomas, Palisadoes Road
International coastal clean-up for St Thomas, Palisadoes Road
Each year in September, hundreds of thousands of volunteers comb lakes, rivers and beaches around the world for litter. These volunteers are the driving force behind International Coastal Clean-up Day.
Last year, 561,000 volunteers picked up more than 16 million pounds of trash from the coastlines and waterways around the world.
St Thomas and the Palisadoes Road were included in Inter-national Coastal Clean-up Day activities.
Generation 2000 (G2K), led by President Matthew Samuda; JLP caretaker for St Thomas Eastern, Delano Seiveright; Dalvey division councillor Michael McLeod, fishermen and residents of Rocky Point and the wider Dalvey division, with the support of the Jamaica Environment Trust (JET) worked hard at cleaning up the beautiful Rocky Point beach.
Tourism Minister Dr Wykeham McNeill joined JET in its 22nd annual beach clean-up exercise along the Palisadoes strip.
Seiveright said the exercise was a tremendous success for Rocky Point and surrounding areas and expressed his commitment to transforming the parish for the better.
