On that day, despite the raw weather, over 90 pounds of trash was collected off this beach. With Tammy's help, this trash will be sorted and reported, it's source determined and shared with local authorities for consideration of new legislation. The Spencerport team gathered 45 pounds of trash alone. We hope that we can make this an annual UCC event. The health of our beautiful great lake depends on it.
A total of 31 people collected the following:
Total weight: 90 pounds
Total items collected: 1280
Top three items: Foam pieces (127, 9.9%), cigarette butts (126, 9.8%), and plastic pieces (118, 9.2%).
79% of all items collected were plastic or had a plastic component.
