Cleaning up Brook Street with the KIC Club


Students from the high school’s Keep Islip Clean club teamed up with local community members, neighbors and Islip Town officials from the KIC office to participate in International Coastal Cleanup Day on Sept. 19.

The high schoolers assisted with the cleanup of Brook Street and the surrounding marsh and woods, removing bottles, cans, e-waste, food containers, wrappers and yard waste. Brook Street is the KIC club’s “adopt-a-spot,” and every April, the students actively work to keep the area free of litter for Earth Day. Due to the buildup of trash over the last five months, students and community leaders determined that a second cleanup was necessary.
