Turning the Tide Against Trash
Delmarva Power is a proud sponsor of the annual Coastal Cleanup, a community effort held in partnership with environmental groups throughout the region to remove trash and debris from the beaches and rivers along the Delmarva Peninsula.
Each year volunteers are needed to remove trash from several beach and riverbank locations throughout Delaware, Maryland and Virginia.

The event is usually held in the fall.
“Unfortunately, many people who visit our region’s beaches and rivers over the summer leave behind a lot of trash,” said Delmarva Power’s Matt Likovich, a longtime coordinator of the Coastal Cleanup event. “Add to that the debris that washes ashore and you have the potential for serious pollution. Delmarva Power is proud to sponsor Coastal Cleanup because it reflects the kind of environmental stewardship that is central to our business.”
Delmarva Power has sponsored the regional Coastal Cleanup, which is part of International Coastal Cleanup, for nearly 20 years.
