To save budget money this year, our town changed the trash policy to end town garbage pick-up, n barrel placement on the beaches. You're now supposed to take home your own trash.
It's tough to teach folks who've left stuff for years about following brand new rules tho. Several folks I've spoken with at several beaches are spending much of their free beach-walking time cleaning areas, as they hate to see it spoiled with so much crap.
I have many more pics of messes at the beaches not shown today. The town has been made aware they do need to perform some upkeep, even if the old, each week cleaning schedule has been shelved.
You can always count on some folks to make a big mess n not care about its impact. Also we can count on a few devoted local folks, who dedicate themselves to picking up the places they appreciate.
Yay! n a big Thank You to the picker-uppers!
