Pollution Prevention: June 2017 Analysis

Sorting_June Analaysis

This data represents all debris collected through LMC sponsored coastal cleanup events in Palm Beach County from January 1 – June 20, 2017.

Following each beach and underwater cleanup, the Center’s sorting team, comprised of staff, volunteers, and interns weighs all debris and empties it onto a tarp. The trash is sorted into twenty specific categories, counted, and entered into our database.

In the time period of January 1 – June 20, 2017, the team sorted debris from sixty-one cleanup events, totally 55,100 individual pieces of trash.
