DOVER, Del. — State environmental officials are encouraging Delawareans to sign up for the 30th annual Delaware Coastal Cleanup.

Preregistration for this year’s cleanup, which will be held on Sept. 16, closes Friday.

The cleanup covers more than 45 sites in New Castle, Kent and Sussex counties, including river and ocean shorelines as well as wetland and watershed areas.

Volunteers are encouraged to preregister online at the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control’s website to ensure that enough supplies are readied for each site.

Sites that still need additional volunteers are listed on DNREC’s website.
