FT. PIERCE, FL. – Derecktor Ft. Pierce put trash in its place July 27 as part of the 12th Annual Treasure Coast Waterway Cleanup.
A group of nine volunteers from DFP did their part to thoroughly clean two of Fort Pierce’s more popular spoil islands and a stretch of highway along North Causeway Drive near Stan Blum Boat Ramp.
The small, but mighty group removed 250 pounds of trash in three hours, a haul that included: two plastic 55-gallon drums, a large beach umbrella, a pop-up canopy frame and beach chairs. The group also filled a couple oversized trash bags to the brim with everything from plastic bags and pieces of Styrofoam to aluminum cans and glass bottles.
“Derecktor Ft. Pierce is proud to support environment efforts like this in our community,” Justin Beard, Marketing Manager at DFP, said. “Our group made a difference today and we had a great time working together as a team.”
