International Coastal Clean up: Keep Kismet Clean Day††


We were the first community on the west end of FI to participate in this international coastal clean up. We received assistance from Keep Islip Clean, a division of Keep America Beautiful. The effort was led by Sam Wood and Shelly English and was meant to be a non political grass roots effort. In the early 1960s, garbage was burned in the backyards in a 55 gallon drum. George Helm, the builder, would lend his truck for community clean ups of unburnable waste that was dumped in a landfill just this side of the lighthouse. Sam Wood explained his dream of using our small community as an incubator for futuristic composting and recycling undoable in larger towns. The effort was an overwhelming success. 

Approximately 75 town members collected 25 bags of garbage.
