“When we got there, I just got my phone out and a trash bag because I just couldn’t believe how much stuff was there,” said Tara Lemmon about the large amount of garbage at Lake Moultrie this week. She said that level of trash isn’t uncommon in the area. “Liquor bottles, beer bottles, food trash, firework stuff, so much, Coke cans,” said Lemmon on the types of trash she sees. Items like this are on the rise in Lowcountry waterways.
