Ocean Conservancy Coastal Cleanup -Fall 2016

Our biggest Clean Up of the year was a huge success! Over 300 people came out and collected 1,236 lbs of trash from our community! It was great timing to remove that trash before Matthew had time to spread it around! We covered 21 miles spread out over 8 locations. Our grand total for number of trash items collected was: 24,563 with 44% of those items being cigarette butts. We want to thank all of the volunteers that helped us make this happen!
