Annual Flushing Bay Shore Line Clean Up - Riverkeeper Sweep

Riverkeeper Sweep, an annual day of service to clean up the shores of the Hudson River, takes place on Saturday May 11, 2013. Riverkeeper has joined recycling pioneer TerraCycle’s Cigarette Waste Brigade to recycle cigarette butts and related cigarette waste during the cleanup. According to Keep America Beautiful, cigarette butts are among the most commonly littered items, with an estimated 65% improperly disposed of. TerraCycle will be able to turn the butts into industrial products such as pallets or railroad ties. Events are planned throughout the state, including two in Queens.
