Texas Land Commissioner George P Bush has announced that nearly 5,200 volunteers took
part in this year’s Adopt-A-Beach cleanup along the Texas gulf coast, which took place this
past Saturday. Volunteers collected more than 76,000 pounds of trash from the 22 beachfront
locations, including McFadden Beach in Jefferson County. Since 1986, just under 530,000
volunteers have cleaned more than 9,600 tons of trash from Texas beaches.
