The Surfrider Foundation Maui Chapter hosts a beach cleanup at Kahului Harbor this Saturday, Feb. 15, from 9 to 11:30 a.m.

Volunteers are invited to come for any amount of time, and will be provided with gloves and burlap sacks.

Organizers say volunteers should bring “hats, glasses, sunscreen, sturdy shoes, a positive attitude and a willingness to make Maui a better place.”

According to an organization announcement, the cleanup is part of Surfrider’s campaign to kick “Butts Off Our Beaches,” and is the second cleanup in as many months at the location.

Cleanup coordinators will help to organize the collection and counting of cigarette butts separately from other trash to gauge the progress made in the past 30 days.

The event is sponsored by Flatbread Company, who will provide a pizza lunch to volunteers.

To sign up or for further questions interested volunteers should contact: [email protected].
