ZERO EFFORT: The Trilogy!...
Dateline: Saturday, February 4, 2017, along the shoreline of Santa Monica, California, we continued our audit of the accumulation of uncollected #beachtrash which the City of Santa Monica continues to ignore and which it is obligated to maintain on behalf of the State of California on this State of California beach.
How about a dead bird right along the shoreline?!... Welcome to Santa Monica Beach!...
Above and Below: NO EFFORT!... to clean this enormous amount of #beachtrash by the City of Santa Monica.

Santa Monica Beach Trash, Saturday, Feb. 4, 2017: The Video
Welcome to Santa Monica Beach, Ladies and Gentlemen. This is what the beach really looks like at the water's edge. This is not what you will see in the City of Santa Monica's social media.
Above and Below: the amount of #beachtrash is absolutely #Staggering! It is right OUT IN THE OPEN and totally ignored by the City of Santa Monica which is obligated to clean it up as the custodian of this State of Calif. beach.
Note the empty discarded glass bottles below right next to beach patrons... The City still collects its parking fees and the public has to put up with these hazards...
Note: Multiple glass bottles (can be seen below in the following 3 photos) along the water's edge adjacent to Bay St. and Lifeguard Tower #20 which the City does not bother to collect and/or dispose of and which represents an obvious public health and safety risk.
Question: How difficult would it be for the City of Santa Monica to assign a couple of their sanitation staff to walk the water's edge and hand pick up this #beachtrash? Answer: Not difficult. Reality: The City of Santa Monica continues to not do so, in spite of a City spokesperson stating that the City does clean up the #beachtrash along the water's edge. As our blog proves, however, this is not the case.
Our goal, as I have stated many times before, is to get the City of Santa Monica to do its part in cleaning up the #beachtrash along the water's edge as they are obligated to do as the custodian of this State Beach. If the City is not going to do this, then the State of California needs to find another entity to do so.
