It seems that no number of beach clean-ups is large enough to keep up with the dumping and discarding of trash on our beautiful beaches. Thanks to everyone who participated.

"We average about 1,000 pounds per cleanup," Schwartz said. "It's frustrating that there is so much litter in our beautiful community;

"chair of earth and space sciences". College. Enough said.

Thanks to Dave Schwartz, an excellent teacher and good dude. Also, responding to "No Juice for me", the cleanup takes place twice each year, for an average annual total of 2,000 pounds collected. Why do you feel the need to mock an excellent teacher and a valuable community resource ??
