The recycling yard will take Styrofoam, but for packing peanuts, you can also take them to any UPS office (like the one in the Crespi Center) and they'll recycle them.

" I will be going there on Saturday afternoon "

Can you give a time and place we might gather to wreck a noiter, so to speak?

Documentation is important, but if a Daly City drain is dumping that kind/amount of trash onto the beach in Pacifica, there is no way it's legal. First calls would be to establish ownership of the drain's right-of-way.

I asked a few weeks ago at the Pacifica recycling yard on Palmetto and they said that they do recycle Styrofoam. Of course, I also hope the Styrofoam stays in the bin after I leave it there.

Any idea who takes the packing nurdles for recycling?

The drains that make the "secret waterfall" come from Fairmont-Fairmont West and Westlake Terraces. Chances are this mess is from commercial use.

I will go out this weekend and pick up trash. Thank you to the Pacifica Beach Coalition for helping organize regular beach cleanups!

Thanks, guys, for your generous offers! Dan, I will be going there on Saturday afternoon if you're free. And Todd, I'd love to get together with you and figure out how to get the word out, and to whom.

If you need help picking it up, I'll try to find time.

Ian, if you need help with this, as in bringing this to the attention of the public, I'd like to help.
