Committee Mission Statement / Function
To organize and carry out an annual spring lake-wide Lake Gaston Clean Up Day.
The Committee will develop a plan and solicit the support of local businesses, Lake organizations and citizens to remove debris from Lake Gaston’s waters, shoreline and bordering thoroughfares on a designated day in the spring of each year. The Committee will arrange for advertising of the event, procurement of necessary supplies, and coordination of the cleanup activities on the day of the event.
The goal of the Annual Lake Clean-Up Day is to get our beautiful Lake Gaston ready for the summer season by picking up trash and debris from our shorelines and area roads. It’s not too late to get in on the fun.
Dumpsters are being provided courtesy of Waste Industries specifically for this event at Washburn’s Marina and Morningstar Marina. Volunteers will be on hand at these sites from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to assist you as necessary.
Trash bags are available to individuals and groups at the Lake Gaston Regional Chamber office from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and will also be available the day of the event at the manned sites.
This great event gets great support from many organizations: The Lake Gaston Striper Club collects trash from several of the islands. The Coast Guard Auxiliary is on the water in case of emergency. Support is also provided by Dominion, the Lake Gaston Water Safety Council, the FABS and many subdivisions/Home Owners Associations, individuals and Clean-up crews from area Correction Facilities.
Each of our five county governments has signed resolutions in support of the event.
If you haven’t yet obligated to participate, it’s not too late. Find out how by emailing us at LakeCleanup@LakeGastonAssoc.com or call us at (252) 578-6849.
We thank you for your support of the LGA and our efforts to preserve and protect Lake Gaston.

The Lake Gaston Association continues to be your primary voice on the Lake and we are providing significant volunteer time to the improvement of the lake's water quality, health of the fishery, and recognition of first responders.
Our committees have done a solid job this past year in representing our members, gaining significant agreements with the USACE and Dominion Power regarding high water levels, holding political forums, representing you at the various County Commissioner / Supervisor meetings, and hosting a number of community service events (including Lakeside Learning Days, Lake Clean-Up Day, community shred events, fire safety events, the annual aquatic survey, re-vegetation events and more).
Not everyone is able to personally participate in such activities, but if you would like, and are able to play a larger part to help finance these worthwhile activities, please consider donating to the LGA.
