Cleanup removes 18.86 tons of trash
This year's Coastal Cleanup removed 18.86 tons of trash and debris from Pasco County, almost 1.5 tons more than last year. The event drew 1,478 volunteers, roughly the same number as last year, Pasco recycling coordinator Jennifer Seney said. "I'm very pleased at the turnout and the tonnage because every ounce of trash that comes off the ground keeps pollution out of our water and off our coast," said Seney, who organized the Sept. 18 event. Land O'Lakes had a huge team of more than 400 volunteers. Werner-Boyce Salt Springs State Park had more than 100 volunteers, as did San Antonio and the Lacoochee-Trilby area. Altogether 28 teams fanned out across the county to collect trash.
