Delaware Coastal Cleanup 2008


The 23rd annual Delaware Coastal Cleanup was again part of the Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup, the world’s largest annual clearing of trash from coastlines and lakes by volunteers. Almost 2,000 of them turned out at 38 cleanup sites throughout Delaware. The photos below show some of the Delaware volunteers and their "catches" of trash.Kitts Hummock volunteers scouring the beach for trash



Volunteers spread out and scoured the beach for trash and debris at the Kitts Hummock community outside Dover. Kitts Hummock is one of the largest sites for the event, and correspondingly, had one of the highest community turnouts for Coastal Cleanup in Delaware.
