A total of 990 pounds (450 kilograms) of garbage was collected over a three day beach cleanup, a collaborative effort between the Rosevile/Miminegash Watersheds Inc. and the Tignish Watershed Management Group. The watershed groups clean up a total of 40 km of beach and pond perimeter in areas from Pleasant View to Burton and many communities in between. Previous mini cleanups prior to this cleanup yielded a total of 1,034 pounds (470 kilograms). These mini cleanups included emptying out the garbage cans placed at various beaches in the area as well.
