Trash in the San Diego River and elsewhere

News item: River trash tally to hit million-pound mark – SD Union-Tribune

San Diegans illegally discard tires, cars and appliances; refuse such as clothes and boxes from homeless camps; and common litter such as cans and bottles in the San Diego River environment and elsewhere.

The San Diego River Foundation has collected over a million pounds of trash from the river environment since 2005. I Love a Clean San Diego picks up 500,000 pounds of trash each year throughout the county. Looking around, one can easily see they don’t get it all.

Kudos to these organizations and shame on the thoughtless and irresponsible people trashing our waterways and neighborhoods.
