Boston, MA - October 4, 2021

Boston, MA: On September 18th, the Junkluggers of Greater Boston hosted a Coastsweep event as part of the annual International Coastal Cleanup effort, led by Ocean Conservancy. The Junkluggers of Greater Boston invited volunteers to join the staff team in removing litter from Castle Island in South Boston. The participants also recorded data to submit to Ocean Conservancy, which informs the organization on the most commonly littered items. 

Participants removed over 1000 pieces of litter from Castle Island over two hours. The most commonly found item was cigarette butts, with volunteers collecting 342 from the park. Cigarette butts were closely followed by food wrappers and small plastic pieces, the second and third most commonly found items. Volunteers also picked up over 50 bottle caps, straws, cups, and plates littered around the park.  The most interesting find of the cleanup was the bottom of a traffic cone! 

Junkluggers of Greater Boston is hosting a second cleanup event at Wollaston Beach on October 30th at 10 AM. Volunteers are welcome to join in cleaning the Quincy, MA beach and should contact [email protected] for more information.
