Report Details

My husband and I spent 3 hours (6 man hours)  picking up trash.  We ran into one other couple who were doing the same.   I added their trash lbs to our total count  of 80lbs.  It is reallly frustrating that people don't clean up after themselves.  We did find 2 pair of sunglasses.  Mismatched shoes.  A coat.  And lot's of kids beach toys.  Next year I will probably contact SOLVE  and create and official clean-up event for my mile.
