YEARLY COUNTS FROM ONE VOLUNTEER WHO CATEGORIZES EACH ITEM OF TRASH. 

Our other dozen or so volunteers pick up on average 150 pounds a day. 

These totals do not include that or trash we pick up as part of our community beach cleans. That data is reported by pounds picked up and listed on our blog.
