Lawlor Island Beach Cleanup scoops up X-country ski, fish bait boxes, paint brushes and more.HALIFAX -Today 16 paddlers made their way to Lawlor Island for the annual Friends of McNabs Island Paddle & Cleanup . Volunteers from the Friends of McNabs Island Society and Canoe Kayak Nova Scotia landed along the beaches of Lawlor Island, which is part of McNabs and Lawlor Islands Provincial Park and gathered up debris that littered the shoreline.
In total, volunteers collected 130 bags of garbage and recyclables from the shores of the 55 ha island. Among the unusual items found on the beaches today were: a Fischer X-country ski, a few miss-matched hiking boots, a box spring mattress, paint brushes and paint cans, and large fish bait boxes. There was also plenty of more commonly found items such as plastic bags, Styrofoam sheets, old tires, Tim Horton's coffee cups and plastic tampon applicators.
