However, we residents who walk the beaches and sidewalks can easily remedy the litter issues in Delray Beach. There are trashcans placed at every beach-access path, one on the A1A-side shower area, and at least one on the beachside.
As we walk from trashcan to trashcan, we can consciously look for trash to pick up. Come armed with a bag/bucket and a long “grabbing” tool, and you can have significant impact.
I have seen good volunteer citizens doing this occasionally, but not enough to keep the beaches and accesses clean. If all residents who walk the beaches regularly would do this — and the litterbugs see us — maybe we can positively influence bad behavior and keep our coastal areas cleaner.
