Large amounts of trash have been left at the town docks at the town marina in Guilford and police are warning people to clean up after themselves.
The town docks are popular in the summer for fishing, boating and enjoying the view and police said leaving trash, including fishing lines, cigarette butts and beer bottles, behind is not just unsightly, but also illegal and dangerous to animals who make the coastline home.
The Coyne family heads to the water all the time in the summer and they have taken it upon themselves to pick up trash that’s left behind.
“There was a hook and I don’t have any shoes on and I almost stepped on it,” Neave Coyne, of Guilford, said.
Police warned that the crime comes with a hefty state fine.
