Volunteers to Clean Jersey Shore Beaches [AUDIO]

Trash on beaches from Middlesex to Cape May Counties will be picked up Saturday by more than 1400 volunteers participating in Clean Ocean Action’s 28th Annual Fall Sweeps.

Advocacy and Education Fellow Catie Tobin says while they have found unusual things like car tires, they usually find personal hygiene items, fishing hooks, balloons and plastics.

Items collected from more than 50 sites will be recorded and analyzed and published into an annual report. Tobin says it’s about making people aware of the things they throw away that can wash up on our shores and how that can impact not only us, but the environment.

Tobin says volunteers will be paying closer attention to debris in the wake of Superstorm Sandy, but adds they’re not doing anything differently for the beach sweeps.
