13th Annual Lahaina Town Clean Up

13th Annual Lahaina Town Clean Up

International Coastal Cleanup: Saturday, September 16th, 2017

 Last year more than 500 Volunteers participated in the Lahaina Town Clean Up, cleaning the Westside of Maui from Puamana to Mala Wharf and everywhere in-between. Will you join us this year?

The 2017 Lahaina Town Clean Up is going to be the same day as International Coastal Cleanup day - Saturday, September 16th, 2017. Nearly 12 million people and counting have been part of this worldwide volunteer effort to protect the ocean. Today, plastic has been found in 62% of all sea birds and in 100% of sea turtle species. A problem as big as plastic in the ocean requires a big response! By participating in the International Coastal Cleanup, you can make a difference, right here in your own community.

Lahaina Town Clean Up founder Matt Lane has challenged this year's organizers to address prevention as a focus of the cleanup. To work toward accomplishing this goal, we are partnering with the County of Maui to place an emphasis on prevention as a means to combat the issue of waste showing up in our oceans through our drains by stenciling awareness messages of “No Dumping – Drains to Ocean” at storm drain inlets in Lahaina.

EVENT DETAILS:

The 12th annual Lahaina Town Cleanup is set for 8 am to 1 pm volunteers will meet at Kamehameha Iki Park before combing the coastline from Puamana to Mala Wharf. The Stencil teams will pick up supplies and instructions before heading out.

The day will begin at 8 am with coffee and breakfast snacks provided by Ruth Chris Steak House during check in and as data cards are distributed to participants.

The cleanup will be held from 9 am to noon, followed by lunch for all volunteers provided by Pacific'O and water provided by Tropic Water.

This is a waste free event. Volunteers are encouraged to bring gloves, water bottles, litter grabbers, small nets for cigarette butts, and trucks to haul rubbish and recyclables. There will be a bin at Kamehameha Iki Park to collect rubbish – no green waste please.
