CSX employees integral at Chesapeake Bay Foundation's Clean the Bay Day


Tractor tires, hula hoops, ropes, aerosol cans, plastic bags and bottles, hard hats and a Navy combat helmet were just some of the items CSX employees and other volunteers removed June 6 during a Service Day event in Norfolk, Virginia.

More than 160 volunteers gathered on Front Street near Plum Point, nestled on the east bank of the Elizabeth River in downtown Norfolk, for a few hours of removing trash and waste, and collecting electronics for recycling.

The morning project was part of the 27th annual Chesapeake Bay Foundation Clean the Bay Day in Norfolk, sponsored by CSX, the Port of Virginia and SKW Constructors. For CSX volunteers, it was an opportunity to showcase the railroad’s commitment to building a better tomorrow by working to enhance four key areas: safety, community, environment, and health and wellness.

“All of the volunteers have gone above and beyond to help at this event,” said Tanner Council, Hampton Roads grassroots coordinator for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. “CSX continues to be a great partner for us, and we cannot express our appreciation enough.”

CSX employees from the Florence and Huntington divisions were among the 162 volunteers who gathered at Front Street for their portion of the project. While some collected trash around Plum Point, about 30 volunteers took a boat ride across the river to a stretch of beach just south of the Virginia International Gateway shipping terminal in Portsmouth.

Once ashore, they scoured the 300-yard stretch of beach, filling jumbo bags with garbage. The stuffed bags then were loaded onto boats and shuttled to another boat, which ferried the waste to a disposal site.

About 6,000 volunteers spent the day cleaning 530 miles of shoreline and streams throughout eastern Virginia, collecting about 125,000 pounds of trash by late afternoon.
