Seventeen people worked hard on Thursday in the windswept sands of Sachuset Beach in Middletown, removing a total of 175 pounds of marine debris from the shore and surrounding area.

The cleanup, sponsored by Clean Ocean Access, was a success and "a great team effort," organizers said, but buried in the good news is cause for alarm.

"On March 8th a team of 136 people scoured this area and removed 1143 pounds of trash. Where is this stuff coming from?"
