We wrote our data down to figure out which materials were most prevalent. We found that plastics and cigarette butts won by far. Many of the plastics being #6 which is Polystyrene. A harmful plastic that is NOT recycled in SLO county and is often littered.

Saxen and Anson found the most trash by weight out of any other volunteer team. Together they collected 52 pounds of trash! Go Saxen and Anson!

We sorted all the trash from recycling in effort to send less stuff to our growing landfill.
