The first official litter pickup for the Island Women SandSweepers sub-committee resulted in a total of 998 cigarette butts, many pieces of plastic, firework debris, and a variety of unmentionables.
The underbelly of Kure Pier is filled with large pieces of trash and hundreds of cigarette butts, thrown down through the slats above; where do people think these land? It would take a large crew the entire day to clean this area, but this was a start.
Stay tuned for more organized events. The next SandSweepers pickup will likely be at the North end on Pleasure Island. As always, remember, the beach is not an ashtray.
