Volunteers from Surfrider Foundation collected debris from the shoreline and got everything ready for the Jack Harter Helicopters crew to move the collected beach debris with one of their MD 500 helicopters.

The super sacks of plastics, tires, and other beach trash were carried under the helicopter as external loads to a location where they could be loaded onto trucks for recycling and disposal.
