Micro Plastics Cleanup at Lydgate Saturday

The public is invited to a two-hour beach grooming this Saturday, July 29, from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. to beautify the Eastside’s most popular beach, Lydgate.

Recent king Tides have set micro plastics — those small chips of floating plastic trash — adrift, causing major deposits on our popular Lydgate Park swimming pond beach.

The Friends of Kamalani and Lydgate Park Beach Cleanup Team follow a quick and easy process to separate micro plastics from sand, and then they use the reclaimed sand for beach landscaping.

If you’d like to join in this quick beach cleanup, bring work gloves and sun protection. Donated snacks for the volunteers are most welcome.

Meet near the lifeguard tower.

Help spread the word. For more information, call or text Tommy Noyes at 639-1018.
