6200 lbs of trash (3.1 TONS) AND 548 needles collected in 90 minutes. With 41 volunteers, that comes out to 152 lbs of trash per volunteer or 69 lbs of trash per minute collected! With the needles it comes out to 14 needles per volunteer or 6 needles collected per minute! These folks that made it out last Saturday were absolutely AMAZING! Thank you so much! Thank you STIL for all the great prizes given out at the cleanup. EVERYONE was a winner! Thank you Eureka Police Department CSET Team for clearing paths to all the garbage. It made it a lot easier to collect. Thank you MOD Pizza for giving everyone coupons for Pizzas. Thank you ECO Eureka for co-hosting this event with us! We couldn’t get these results without everyone’s efforts.
See you this Saturday at Samoa Beach – Power Poles (first parking lot on the right when heading out to Samoa Beach)
