Cleanup nets 300 pounds of trash

Maui Wedding Association volunteers and others picked up 300 pounds of trash from Keawakapu Beach in Kihei Jan. 11. Ralf Friedrich, a German from Berlin (from left); Dan Lauer of AA Aloha Cars-R-Us; and Maui resident Deborah Slominski were among volunteers who participated. The haul included cigarette butts, beer cans and bottles, broken slippers, plastic bottles, fireworks debris and a jar of pickles. The recent high winds meant that much of the rubbish was pulled from the foliage that lines the sand.
