2011 Student Cleanup

Students from Nute Middle School at Foss Beach in Rye, NH
Last Friday, as part of the NH Coastal Cleanup, six different local schools participated in our annual student cleanup day! Approximately 500 students, teachers, and chaperones cleaned up Hampton Beach, North Beach, Foss Beach, and Wallis Sands. Over 400 pounds of trash were removed from these sites, including 135 beverage cans, 137 cups/utensils, 137 cigar tips, 172 plastic bottles, 194 lobster traps, 228 straws, 359 plastic bags, 472 food wrappers, 474 pieces of rope, 991 bottle caps/lids, and 17,738 cigarette butts!

Thank you to Nottingham School, Sant Bani School, Hampstead Middle School, Nute Middle School, Dondero School, and Little Harbour school for once again participating in our student cleanup day and making a difference on our local beaches!
