UDC to Purchase Litter Clean-Up Tools with Grant Funds

By Sam Miller
The Upper Delaware Council will use a grant to aid litter cleanup efforts in neighboring Sullivan County, NY. Sullivan Renaissance awarded the $500 grant to the UDC, which will fund a dozen litter clean-up kits that will be freely available to volunteers. Designed for use by two people, each kit will contain a five-gallon bucket, a trash grabber tool, contractor bags, neon safety vests, work gloves, face masks, a travel-sized first aid kit, litter clean-up safety tips, a Visitor Information Map & Guide for the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River, and relevant literature such as a briefing on the Delaware River Microplastics Study. The kits will be held at the UDC’s office on Bridge Street in Narrowsburg. This was done as part of Sullivan Renaissance's Healthy Community Initiatives Program, intended to improve and promote the social, physical, and environmental health and wellness of Sullivan County communities.
