Thank you for being part of the International Coastal Cleanup today! Please take a moment to review the information below to make sure your cleanup experience is safe and productive! The Ocean Conservancy will analyze the data you collect today to determine what activities are likely to be causing the debris in your area. For instance, a potato chip bag may indicate picnickers, while a 1-quart oil bottle probably came from a boat, and a strapping band likely from a cargo ship. The information on your data cards will be used to help citizens, community groups and schools, municipalities, business and industry, and government agencies develop solutions for pollution problems associated with coastal and water-borne debris. Filling out your data card as accurately as possible will lead to better debris solutions for your community! Debris Items of Local Concern: Debris not listed on the Data Card but which may be prevalent at your location. List and count up to 3 additional items of debris that you are finding and that are of particular concern to you. This site-specific information can be used by your local cleanup organizers to help create solutions for your community’s unique debris problems. Cleanup Tips ◆ Collect data as a team, with one person recording items on the data cards, while others collect and bag the trash. ◆ Bag ALL the debris you find on the beach and shoreline (above and below the water), but record information only on the items specifically listed on the data card. ◆ Use tick marks ( ) to keep count of your items and enter the total in the box to the left of each debris item. ◆ Use only numbers to record quantities. Do not write words such as “Lots” or “Many.” ◆ Leave natural items like driftwood or seaweed on the beach. Avoid stepping on dune plants and grass. Who’s Trashing the Oceans and Waterways? Be a Data Detective! llll lll This debris can be left by beachgoers as well as disposed of improperly into toilets and city streets. Because medical and hygiene debris often enters the waste stream through sewer systems, its presence on the beach can indicate the presence of other, unseen pollutants. The littering of cigarette filters, cigar tips, and tobacco product packaging is common on land and sea. Debris from beachgoers, picnics, sports and games, festivals, as well as litter washed from streets, parking lots, and storm drains. Debris from recreational fishing and boating; commercial fishing; cargo, military, and cruise ships; and offshore industries such as oil drilling. Debris from legal and illegal dumping of building materials or large household items. © 2005 The Ocean Conservancy Smoking-Related Activities Ocean/Waterway Activities: Shoreline and Recreational Activities: Dumping Activities: Human-made debris, trash and litter... ◆ Harms the environment & wildlife ◆ Threatens human health & safety ◆ Causes communities to lose money ◆ Looks bad!
