I ask you, do we want to be known as Gloucester, TRASHachusetts? I don’t!

The weather is finally nicer so let’s all begin to tackle our litter problem by first cleaning up around our own properties. Then maybe get radical and start a Clean City Initiative by clearing up some place that is not your own property. Just think of the inspiration you could be for others; leading by example! 

I walk around town every day and our woods, marshes, etc are inundated with trash.There is plenty of work to be done. So before the grass grows and covers our litter for yet another year ,let us all be brave Gloucester Citizens by taking personal responsibility for our collective environment. If everyone pitched in just a little, we could have the clean City we deserve in no time.

Many hands really do make light work.

Editors note:  Janet just last week after visiting EJ at the Hobbit Studio above Sailor Stan’s and walking back to my truck I walked past this very spot where you took photos and there was a guy right there at low tide picking up trash.  Where the wind pushes in certain directions sometimes it all collects in spots even if it had been cleaned the day before.


  • About Nat’s Basset beach clip. That little black “Bassador” looks like the sibling of my Dash. I adopted Dash from the CAAA two summers ago. Best therapy dog ever.


  • We are fairly new to Gloucester and would be interested in getting involved in helping to clean up areas like those pictured here. Are there any groups who do this? How can one get in touch with them?
