The City of Marco Island Beach Advisory Committee hosted a Beach Clean-Up on Sunday, November 18, at South Beach.
Over thirty participants collected garbage. Publix provided the water, bags and gloves for the clean-up; MICA provided the vehicle to haul trash, supplies and participants if necessary and also disposed of all trash collected. Two large pieces of lumber were removed from beach between the two jetties at Cape Marco and over forty bags of trash were removed from the beach. Participants reported an abundance of cigarette butts and plastic bottle caps, but much fewer straws than usual. Thank you to all who participated. It was a beautiful morning.
