What does 87 tons of trash look like? As one of the volunteers who showed up for the 27th Annual Texas General Land Office Adopt-A-Beach Spring Cleanup. In a single Saturday morning, over 6,000 volunteers fanned along the Texas shorelines to pick up all that trash. It’s scary to think they collected 87 tons but even scarier to realize how careless some people are when it comes to throwing away garbage.
“Trash on Texas beaches kills fish, birds and tourism potential,” Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson said after pitching in to help cleanup Surfside Beach. “The nearly 6,000 volunteers who showed up and got to work today to do something about it make me proud to be a Texan.”
Along with the usual trash suspects of cigarette butts, beer cans and other litter the trash pickers also found diving gear, a plastic turkey, a plastic donkey, a plastic alligator, underwear, a bottle of sulfuric acid, hair extensions, a burned mattress, a syringe, a bag of marijuana and a cooler full of hot beer and sodas. Just like there are adopt-a-highway projects you can also adopt-a-beach or at least a section of the beach.
Now that those beaches are cleaned up, you might be considering a weekend excursion to the shore. Of course you’d still have to handle your own home cleanup projects.
