This is always an important cleanup for us due to how close the litter is to Humboldt Bay. So, THANK YOU, to the volunteers that showed up and saved all that litter from hitting Humboldt Bay and going out to the ocean.
We also had a “remote” crew out on Vance Ave. dealing with an abandoned camp right next to the water line. They pulled out close to 1,000 lbs of garbage. Great job Jacey, Chris, Pam, & Ted!
Lastly we discovered a LARGE abandoned camp right off the highway, on the North side of the road, right before you take the Marina exit. This camp has 2,000 – 3,000 lbs of garbage and 100+ needles. We are trying to come up with a strategy to address this spot very soon. Stay tuned and follow us for updates and details.
