Trash-a-thon Citizen Science

We have been having so much fun doing our Trash-a-thon cleanups this week! Here’s the submission page on the NOAA Marine Debris Tracker app from one of our staff’s cleanups. You can see where each piece of trash was picked up, the total number of pieces, and a breakdown by category. The most notable find: 199 cigarette butts in just a few blocks!

We hope all our Trash-a-thon volunteers are having safe and fun cleanups and we appreciate all the NEC Trash Trackers cleaning up our community while collecting some really valuable citizen science trash data!
