Last year, more than 18,000 pounds of trash was collected at more than 60 sites along the Delmarva coast. But Delmarva Power's Matt Likovich remembers when they used to collect 60,000 of trash and junk.

He says it's clear people are becoming more environmentally conscious.

"People are being more cognizant of how they dispose of their trash; they're becoming more aware of the need to recycle," says Likovich.

He says they typically pick up a lot of bottles and cigarette and cigar butts, but there's always some interesting finds.

"A toilet, sofa pillow, plaster cast of a foot was found last year, a car headlight, and even some lottery tickets in a bottle," he says.
