International Coastsweep

Salem Sound Coastwatch coordinated beach and river cleanups in Beverly, Salem, Marblehead, Peabody, and Swampscott.

115 volunteers picked up 845 lbs of trash from 12 locations which included over 5,400 cigarette butts.

Some unusual finds were the lower half of a manikin, Christmas lights, eyeglasses, and rugs. We also found a car key and a class ring. Both were return to their owners.

Thank you to all who helped clean our coastline.
