|SARASOTA COUNTY – Sarasota County is reminding all beach-goers this holiday to “pack-in and pack-out” all of the items they bring with them to area beaches, as part of a community-wide effort to keep the shorelines litter-free. Sarasota County Parks, Recreation and Natural Resources staff, and volunteers, will be providing yellow trash bags for beach users throughout the holiday. There are also cigarette disposal stations available for use at county operated beaches. In addition, temporary signage will be installed on all county-managed beaches and banners will be placed at area beaches to bring attention to the proper disposal of litter. As part of Sarasota County’s standard holiday coverage, additional dumpsters, trash receptacles and trash pick-ups at the parks are scheduled to support the larger crowds July 2 through July 6. For more information, call the Sarasota County Contact Center at 941-861-5000 or visit scgov.net.
