Students Clean Beach And Lots In Far Rockaway
More than 100 students from various schools around the area and their families and teachers came together for a cleanup that yielded more than 80 bags of debris from the vacant lots near the boardwalk and the beach from Beach 29 to Beach 31 Street last Saturday. PS 43 teacher JoAnne Ellis arranged the cleanup as part of the American Littoral Society's International Beach Clean Up.
Also taking part was the Rockaway Waterfront Alliance, which provided 100 percent biodegradable, pink polka dot trash bags. The bags, designed by artist Adrian Kondratowicz, are part of a public art project, "Trash: Any Color You Like."
