I noticed that. I was there for 2 weeks Nov. 11th through the 25th. There
was a lot of wind and rain. We also stayed at West Bay and there was a lot
of debris washed up on the beach because of the storms. The locals raked the
beaches as best they could however, to discard the trash they dug big holes
in the sand an buried the trash right on the beach. Not a good system. It
needed to be carted away.
I will be moving for there for good shortly and would like everyone to do
there part in keeping it a beautiful island.
