Trash (Adopt a Beach)
Thousands of pounds of trash are removed from the beaches of Port Aransas each year. Some trash washes in from offshore by waves and wind, but the main source of human-made debris found on Texas beaches is the litter beachgoers leave behind.
Help reduce consumer trash by limiting what you bring and properly disposing what you use. Trash receptacles and yellow Up2U reusable litter bags are available at nearly 20 beach locations (link to blog about the receptacles). Official beach cleanups are organized by Adopt-A-Beach bi-annually in the spring and fall. Sign up to volunteer with Keep Port Aransas Beautiful.
