Thanks Cyrus, and everyone else. That’s a great service you did. It’s amazing that this level of trash would be allowed to accumulate there. It’s hard to imagine why people wouldn’t clean up after themselves, but obviously it happens in a big way. Perhaps DNR could patrol areas like Morris Island on holidays and other times when those areas are heavily used? If uniformed personnel were around to issue citations for littering, maybe that would have a positive impact on behavior.
I am astounded at the amount of trash that people left. That is really sad that people have no remorse in terms of leaving that much trash on the beach. If I can ever help in any other clean-up ventures, I would certainly be glad to help!
This is appalling! I hope the people who left their trash saw this and are asshamed! We are going to lose the priviledge of enjoying beautiflu places like Morris Island if people can’t learn to cleanup after themselves. I hope this message reaches those people. Thank you for all your hard work!
Wow. Another byproduct of the current self entitled “me” generation of apathetic idiots. These will be the same people whining about their “rights” when a police presence is needed to chaperone these spots. Pack in, pack out people. You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone.
I think that the city should mandate a clean up crew on big holidays regardless if there is a drinking ban or not. Every city around the country has crews for their celebrations, why don’t we? I think our 1/2 cent sales tax should go a lot farther than just CARTA
