The cleanup was focused on small trash that is difficult to pick up.
In about 90 minutes, volunteers combed the beach, removing over 2,000 cigarette butts, almost 600 bottle caps and over 300 drink cans and bottles, and single-use food containers.
They also collected plastic bags, polystyrene from packaging, fishing nets and rope, batteries, drug paraphernalia, condoms, and many other items.
Volunteers also used a sand-sifter to clean sand by pulling out micro-plastics. Micro-plastics are small plastic particles about 5mm are less either from industrial pellets that serve as precursors for manufactured plastic products.
