TOMORROW / SATURDAY -

CORRECTED DATE - 24 SEPTEMBER

FOCUS AREA FOR THIS CLEAN-UP: From Indigo (Mata Grande) north to La Perla.

The Town Board has a truck available for Saturday.
Some very concerned residents in the Playa Blanca area have worked all week long to haul junk from lots, roadsides and lagoons - they have bagged and stacked the stuff along the road. There is a core of residents and staff from this area ready to load the trucks on Saturday.
Indigo has a team ready to participate - the roadside from Indigo to Mata Chica only has a few bad areas, and these men will tackle as much as they can. If you live in the area and get this notice in time, please show up at Indigo around 8 AM and jump into the effort.


THE PLAN

The SPTB truck will meet Bob and Diane around 8 am at Indigo. We'll travel north to Playa Blanca and load the pre-bagged/piled trash on the truck.
Whilst this is happening, the Indigo/Mata Grande Team will be bagging roadside trash from Indigo up to Mata Chica.
The truck will then move south, picking up whatever else has been bagged and set by the roadside.

After the roadside trash noted above has been hauled, the truck will proceed to the piles of construction/landscape debris behind La Perla. This will be hauled away to be used for fill for San Mateo.

NACW/Tres Cocos residents / Buena Vista area residents / Las Terrazas / Seascape / Sandy Point Resorts / Flying Fisherman / Spanish Reef ......everybody from the bridge to Indigo - here is what YOU can do:
Go out to the beach or along your road and pick up whatever is there (there will be some new trash along the road that was previously cleaned - not much, but a bottle or box here and there) and if you pick it up and bag it we can have it hauled away for you.


After this push we have a plan for another big CLEAN PARTY addressing the beaches north of town. We'll be working in collaboration with recycling professionals and students of ecology, BTB, SPTB and Tour Guides/tour operators. We'll make it a party and you will be invited, for sure!

Thanks to all .....
Diane for the Clean Team

These rock, really. Nothing like a clean "room" and the same can be said for the world we walk through, yup ...except that perhaps it would be nice not to crap it up in the first place...

Now if we could just get the orbits above us tidied up.
When garbage in space is an issue we're in deep doo-doo.

Thanks Diane!

Any idea of when the truck will be coming along to pick up bagged trash south of Indigo?

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT

During my annual medical trip to California I constantly saw white bags of trash sitting along the freeways awaiting pickup and the roadsides were incredibly clean. How’s that happen you ask.

People who receive tickets can do week-end roadside clean up in lieu of jail or fines. This accomplishes a number of things: keeps the jail population and subsequent costs down, keeps the road sides clean and humiliates the offenders to the point of never wanting to commit the offense again.

Instead of supporting people in jail for smoking ganja (where they seem to be able to continue smoking ganja) have them do beach and roadside cleanup.

I can envision all kinds of objections to this but I would like to see a pro and con discussion and consideration for moving this forward into a plan of action.

Just as we are trying to teach the children about not littering by having them do clean up - let's give their adult relatives the same lesson.
