Volunteers Needed for April’s Upper Delaware Litter Sweep

NARROWSBURG – Community clean-up teams are coming together and 350 commemorative t-shirts are ready for the 4th Annual Upper Delaware Litter Sweep!

The Upper Delaware Council (UDC) encourages individuals, students, groups, and businesses to help spring-clean landscapes in the 15 New York towns and Pennsylvania townships bordering along the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River.

Safety pink t-shirts sporting a new 2024 design contributed by renowned graphic artist Eric J. Hinkley on the front, the UDC’s Land-Water-People motto on the back, and the WJFF Radio Catskill 90.5FM media sponsor logo on the shoulder will identify Litter Sweep volunteers.

The UDC is supplying trash bags, gloves, grabbers, safety equipment, and instructions. The nonprofit organization also handles event fundraising, permitting, and publicity.

The Council will connect interested people with designated Litter Leaders in Hancock, Fremont, Delaware, Cochecton, Tusten, Highland, Lumberland, Deerpark, Manchester, Buckingham, Berlin, Damascus, Lackawaxen, Shohola, and Westfall.

Communities have been arranging clean-up dates and locations for as early as April 14 and as late as April 30, surrounding April 22 Earth Day.

Please contact UDC Administrative Support Stephanie Driscoll at (845) 252-3022 or to volunteer. Goods and services are also welcome.
