Pounds of Garbage


Past Clean-up Results:

Every year, we host or participate in beach and shoreline clean-ups across Lake Huron's coastline to reduce litter on the shore and raise awareness of the issues facing our coastal environments.

Our coastal communities are becoming more aware of the litter produced and washing out of the lake. This is a problem that affects the health and wellness of our coastal ecosystems and the people who live on and visit these areas.

Let's work together to keep our communities beautiful!

"It's not our garbage, but it's our planet"

Why do we need shoreline clean-ups?

Did you know, Scientific estimates that certain parts of the Great Lakes contain more than 500,000 pieces of plastic per square kilometre.


Plastic pollution comes in all forms and sizes;


Big items: 

  • vehicle tires,

  • laundry jugs.


Smaller items: 

  • toothbrushes,

  • food packaging,

  • pens, 

  • straws, 

  • micro and mesoplastics.


This harms the environment, threatens human health and safety, causes communities to lose money and most of all, it looks bad.
