Beach cleanup collects piles of trash from south beaches

Volunteers collected about 1,500 pounds of trash Saturday from the beaches between Westport and Tokeland. The cleanup was organized by the Olympia chapter of the Surfrider Foundation, Twin Harbors Waterkeepers and the Grays Harbor Stream Team. The trash was brought back to the Westport Maritime Museum and Pacific Seafoods provided a truck to haul some of it away. The Pacific Coast Shellfish Growers Association helped out. “The support of the industry is a great help in this whole process,” said John Shaw, museum director. “It also helps with the recycling of some of the materials.”
