Waterford Green Cleans After Fireworks Display

Waterford Green Cleans After Fireworks Display

Niantic, CT- McCook Point Park was nearly blanketed in many areas on Monday, July 17, with the remains of fireworks, seemingly from the Celebrate East Lyme Day display. Waterford, CT resident Josh Kelly came across the mess nearly two days after the event had ended, with seemingly none of the scraps having been moved or cleaned in any capacity. After three hours of collecting litter in the park, Kelly hand-counted more than 2,600 separate pieces of litter, which included plastics, metal, string, and cardboard, the vast majority of which was lined with chemicals from the fireworks. This was removed from the park, thanks to Kelly, and the litter collected weighed a total of 16.97 pounds. Due to the positioning of the fireworks, however, it is quite likely that several times that amount of litter was cast into the Sound as a part of the display. Additionally, over a dozen piles of powder were found on the ground of the park, which appeared to be chemicals from the fireworks. Numerous scientific studies have documented the adverse effects of such chemicals on both local ecosystems and human health.

Numerous individuals stopped to ask about the mess, and several individuals, most of whom were tourists to the area, stopped along their way to pitch in. Many noted how terrible it had looked before the cleaning began, and one man stated that he believes the United States would be a better country if more care were given to our environment.

Josh Kelly is an elected official in Waterford, serving on both the town’s Conservation Commission and Zoning Board of Appeals as an alternate, and he is seeking election to the Representative Town Meeting in District 3 this November on the environmentalist Green Party platform. He was excited to have so many residents and non-residents alike to stop and talk to him about his cleaning of the park, and he hopes such community discussion will help to galvanize citizens to organize additional clean-ups and take proactive steps to mitigate environmental harm in the future. Anyone interested in hearing more about the Green Party’s hands-on efforts or platform are encouraged to attend their next meeting and nominating convention at 10am on Saturday, July 29, 2017 at the Waterford Public Library.
