Tuesday, Sept. 12, 2017: Santa Monica Beach Trash Report

Dateline: Tuesday morning, Sept. 12, 2017 along Santa Monica State Beach between the Santa Monica Pier and Ocean Park and back along the water's edge.  Below is just a sampling of the #beachtrash that I observed between the high tide line and the water's edge that was not collected or otherwise hand picked and disposed of by the City of Santa Monica today.

Above and below, two images showing the beach below the high tide and nearest the water's edge that continues to NOT be daily hand picked of #beachtrash by the City of Santa Monica...

Above and below, an empty discarded glass bottle of Corona Extra beer remains below the high tide line and uncollected and/or otherwise disposed of by the City of Santa Monica due to the fact that the City does not assign ANYONE to walk the beach near the water's edge on a daily basis to pick up #beachtrash...

Above and below, you can clearly see the line in the sand left by the City of Santa Monica's tractor and rake.  Note that the beach closest the to the water's edge (50 -  60 yards) continues to NOT get hand picked or otherwise cleaned of #beachtrash on a daily basis by the City of Santa Monica...

The City of Santa Monica continues to ignore the daily accumulation of #beachtrash near the water's edge  The City continues to rely almost entirely on its tractors and rakes to groom the beach above the high tide line, leaving the beach frequented most by beach patrons ignored and unswept of #beachtrash on a daily basis.
