September is recognized as International Coastal Clean Up Month and each year Friends of the Environment and the Ministry of Tourism co-host Abaco's participation in this international event. The official cleanup day was September 20 but cleanups took place throughout all of September and the beginning October. FRIENDS sent out invitations to schools, churches and local government to participate but it was mainly only schools who responded with just a couple of community groups.
