Volunteers clean up after Fourth of July celebrations

July 4 celebrations along the stretch of South Shore from Elbow to Coral Beach are a regular fixture.

Locals and visitors alike set up camp in the late night hours to be in prime viewing position of the spectacular fireworks display commemorating US independence.

Musician Tony Brannon reported piles of bottles, plastic bags, pizza boxes, and cigarettes left on Elbow Beach after this year’s festivities.

Mr Brannon and friends chipped in over the weekend to clean up — but he called for extra bins, plus night visits by Park Rangers, to keep the beaches in better shape.

“There’s only ever one trash can on the beach at Elbow,” he said. “Every weekend people come and dig out the sand, put charcoal in there and make a mess. It is now getting bad all over Bermuda.”
