 'Pack-in and pack-out' this holiday weekend


​Sarasota County is reminding all beach-goers this holiday weekend 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.

Trucks will be stationed at Lido, Nokomis and Siesta beaches throughout the weekend for trash and debris removal. Additional dumpsters placed at Ted Sperling Park at South Lido Beach, Siesta and Turtle beaches, and the North Jetty, will be emptied July 3 and again on July 5. Extra trash cans will be placed at each beach access point within each beach park.
