Report: Brighten the Bay Clean Up

Saturday November 5, 2016 was the “Brighten the Bay” clean up on the Long Beach Bay front.

Can you guess how many pounds of trash and recyclables were removed?


Considering we had all our buckets completely filled within 5 minutes and had to make an emergency run for more contractor bags, If you said anything less than 1,100 pounds, it would be too low. Yes, that’s not a typo- eleven hundred.
There were empty propane tanks, bicycles, furniture, engine parts, dock materials, building materials, and all sorts of other discarded items.
We also compiled 5 contractor bags of recyclable bottles, cans, metals, plastics, etc.
