POINT PLEASANT — Volunteers came out to the Manasquan riverfront at Maxson and River avenues for the annual Clean Ocean Action beach sweeps on Saturday, April 15.
Marianne Grant, organizer for the borough’s beach sweep, said 12 people showed up for the event at Riverfront Park, most of them recurring volunteers from previous years.
About 350 pieces of garbage were removed. Ms. Grant said, “The beach wasn’t as dirty as in previous years.” Items such as bottle caps and pieces of paper were very common on the beach. The most found item was cigarette filters, with 72 filters found on these beaches.
