Fall 2011 Clean Ocean Action Beach Sweep - Cliffwood Beach, NJ

We went down to the Fall 2011 Clean Ocean Action (COA) Beach Sweep at Cliffwood Beach this morning. It was a glorious sunny and clear fall day. A bit of a chill in the air. Lots of people were there collecting cans, bottles, plastics, bottle caps, various floatables, and trash. We even found a broken hula hoop! We brought our own gloves, but they offered cloth work gloves, rubber gloves, plastic bags, and trash poles to spear paper trash. We were given a clipboard and a little pencil to log our booty for the big count. We spent about an hour and collected a bag of recyclables. The Township provided a worker and truck to collect the refuse. I was particularly pleased to see lots of children and teens. It's an easy task when so many people show up to help.
