More can be done to keep beaches clean

Dear Sir,

I applaud Cada for tagging people in an attempt to curb underage drinking at the beach. Could there not also be a push by Keep Bermuda Beautiful to pass trash bags to beachgoers to assist the parks employees in keeping the beach clean?

Maybe at the entrance on public holidays like Cup Match and May 24, parks/KBB can place a box or roll with trash bags where one can take a bag upon arrival.

Looking at the ridiculous amount of trash removed from the beach on Tuesday, more can be done to make beachgoers more responsible.

Even at Mangrove Bay for the Non-Mariners Race, anchored floating trash receptacles can be used to encourage those in attendance to not dump in the water.

I know most responsible beachgoers and boaters do dispose of their trash appropriately, but a large proportion of those that attend gatherings such as Beachfest and Non-Mariners do not.


Party time: crowds at Horseshoe Bay on the first day of Cup Match
