Town of Islip, KIC, South Shore University Hospital & the Islip Chamber of Commerce Beautification Committee Clean-Up

April 23, 10 amnoon.

For the past 12 years, this collaborative effort has aimed to beautify and restore the cleanliness of our beloved community.  This year, South Shore University Hospital and the Town of Islip are proud to participate in the event, in partnership with the Islip Chamber of Commerce Beautification Committee and KIC (Keep Islip Clean). The annual cleanup of Spur Drive South from Brentwood Road to 5th Ave is scheduled to kick off on April 23 at 10 a.m.


“We are fortunate here in the Town of Islip that residents take tremendous pride in the communities they call home, and devote their free time to beautification efforts,” said Islip Town Supervisor, Angie Carpenter.


Edward Fraser, Vice President of the Islip Chamber of Commerce, expressed the urgency of the cleanup, stating, “There is just so much garbage along this road as I travel it each day, unfortunately, this is indicative of many roadways across our Town, County, and State. The Town of Islip under the leadership of Angie Carpenter and the Suffolk County Police, along with KIC, have always been great partners in this cleanup, however, it takes the whole community working together to effect meaningful change. This cleanup initiative aims to not only remove litter, but also to identify structural issues such as fallen fences and trees. It’s an opportunity for the community to come together and take pride in their surroundings,” said Fraser.


Fraser emphasized the importance of community involvement, stating, “We hope that this cleanup helps raise awareness, and brings everyone together to better our community.”


All members of the community are encouraged to participate in this important event, and help make a difference in the cleanliness and aesthetics of the neighborhood.
