CSX joins Chesapeake Bay Foundation, Port of Virginia for 25th Annual Clean the Bay Day


CSX brought together 63 volunteers from 9 am-12 noon at Front Street and Plum Point Park. The company partnered with the Virginia Port Authority and members of the community to help the Chesapeake Bay Foundation remove and dispose of waterway and shoreline debris as part of the massive 25th Annual Clean the Bay Day. The event brought together thousands of volunteers at hundreds of sites throughout the state of Virginia. The ‘Silver Anniversary’ of the event brought together more than 6,000 volunteers, who picked up more than 62 tons of litter and debris along 500 miles of Virginia coastline.

In Norfolk, volunteers moved on foot and by boat to remove approximately 3 tons of trash along Plum Point and APM Beach.

The morning started with a safety briefing from Bill Burket of the Virginia Port Authority Director Maritime Incident Response Team. Wayne Barnhill, Huntington, W.Va., road foreman of engines, is a four-time Clean the Bay Day volunteer, volunteering twice in Norfolk. This year, he made the eight-hour drive with his wife, Cindy, and their son, Eli, 14.

“This is a nice way for us to do our part to help maintain a beautiful part of the country and spend some time together as a family,” Barnhill said.

Dylan MacDonald, 18, son of Tony MacDonald, Portsmouth terminal manager, grew up around the Chesapeake Bay area and feels a sense of responsibility to help keep it clean.

“We need to pay more attention to what we’re throwing away and where it goes,” MacDonald said.

For the fourth consecutive year, CSX was lead sponsor for the event. Christy Everett of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation said she appreciated the environmental stewardship of the railroad and its employees.

“We are very pleased to have the support of CSX, and the wonderful people who make the company what it is,” she said. Overall, 20 cities and counties throughout the state were represented at the event. All of Virginia’s 20 state parks within the Chesapeake Bay watershed were cleanup sites.

Since 1989, Clean the Bay Day has engaged over 122,000 volunteers, who have removed approximately 5.8 million pounds of debris from nearly 5,500 miles of shoreline in Virginia alone.

CSX Corporation, based in Jacksonville, Fla., is one of the nation’s leading transportation companies, connecting customers to ports, distribution centers and markets across the eastern United States. CSX is proud to sponsor organizations like the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and the Port of Virginia in their efforts to improve parks, schools, recreational centers and other public places in the many types of rural, suburban and urban communities that CSX connects and serves. In September, the railway was added to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for its achievements in environmental performance, including reaching ahead of schedule the company’s voluntary goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by eight percent and its “Trees for Tracks” program to plant one tree for each of the 21,000 miles of CSX track.
