Trash-a-thon 2021: That’s A Wrap!

Thanks to all the incredible volunteers who came out to support the NEC during this year’s Trash-a-Thon event! The NEC’s staff team joined a cleanup hosted by Humboldt Area Center for Harm Reduction near the Eureka waterfront. Our team picked up 1,061 pieces of trash in 2 hours!

Here are some photos of the strange things we found. If you’d like to share photos from your cleanup, email them to! What was the weirdest trash item your team found?
