September has been declared "International Coastal Cleanup Month" and is one of the world's largest annual preservation and protection events and volunteer efforts for our ocean, waves and beaches.  COMPASS Unity Coalition will be taking part in this effort during the week of September 21st.  During this week, we ask that you visit your favorite local beach (within South Country) , bring a garbage bag and gloves, and pick up any trash you find.  While you are doing so, if you see anything related to tobacco, alcohol or drug related paraphernalia, please take a picture.  Items may include cigarette butts, beer cans, vape cartridges, alcohol bottles, etc.  Taking part in this cleanup/scan will help to answer the questions about your community's substance use and abuse.  After you collect, log and properly dispose of the trash you collected, please take a minute to answer the following questions.  Please provide details in the comment box such as items seen, exact location and any other details that might help the coalition.
