    NEWFIELD — The Cumberland County Improvement Authority made a contribution to the world wide International Coastal Clean Up initiative when it recently held its Annual Waterways Clean Up. This year two groups of volunteers were recruited for events in the Maurice River watershed. Tony Riviera, CCIA recycling coordinator, organized the event and supplied gloves, bags, grabbers, water bottles, and T-shirts for all the volunteers. “Cleaning the Maurice River is vital to maintaining the Delaware Bay and coastal environments it flows into,” Riviera said. The first group of volunteers met at Al and Sam’s Canoe, Boats, and Kayak’s on Weymouth Road. Al and Sam’s provided canoes and kayaks for the 16 volunteers who would be paddling down the Maurice River. This stretch of the river is on the western border of Vineland. The group included members of the CCIA, Vineland Students Helping Animals Plants and the Environment club, and Watershed Ambassador J Lucas Carll. Clean up supplies and T-shirts were handed out to the Vineland High School students who were in attendance. Their teachers, Lisa Fagan and Michelle Villar, led the students to the launch point off Garden Road. Volunteers were immediately picking up trash along the dirt path to the water. Photographer, Martin Fiedler, was present to document the volunteers in action. The paddling volunteers picked up trash along the river’s meandering edge. This included two plastic chairs and part of a table. A stop at Alliance Beach supplied much of the 26 bags collected. And, 11 of the bags were separated materials sent to be recycled. The group continued along the river until they reached West Side Park on Almond road. Al and Sam’s provided pick up and transport of volunteers back to the starting point after four hours of service to the community. The second group of volunteers gave four and a half hours of their time cleaning up South Vineland Park. Mike Velazquez organized Boy Scout Troop No. 1108 of Vineland and other volunteers. Around 30 total volunteers collected 15 bags of litter to be removed from the park. And five of the bags were items that will now be recycled. This will prevent it from further polluting Cumberland County’s rivers and streams. “Thank you to all the volunteers for the over 200 hours served in this year’s Annual Waterway Clean Up,” Carll said. “It was amazing seeing this amount of commitment to a clean community my first week as the Salem, Cohansey, Maurice Watersheds Ambassador. I look forward to serving with the great people of the Cumberland County Improvement Authority, Vineland SHAPE, Al and Sam’s, and Boy Scout Troop 1108 on future watershed improvement projects.”
