Inaugural “Keep the Quiet Resorts Beautiful” Community Clean-up – 4/21/18 8:00 – 3:00

Join the Bethany-Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce in celebrating Earth Month at the inaugural “Keep the Quiet Resorts Beautiful” community clean-up! In partnership with Republic Services and the Inland Bays Garden Center, individuals, families, businesses, non-profits, and community groups alike are invited to celebrate Earth Day by adopting and cleaning a section of roadway throughout coastal Sussex County.
Groups of 5 or more can adopt a 1/4 stretch of roadway, collecting trash and recycling debris on the side of the road. Don’t have a group? No problem! We’ll pair you with a group of like-minded neighbors as we work collectively to keep our area beautiful!
