Calling All Locals for NH beaches

For those of you who frequent the New England coast, we need your help. There have been white plastic discs showing up on beaches in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. They are about 1.5" in diameter, and come from a waste water treatment facility in Hooksett.

The Blue Ocean Society (who manages the greater beach cleanup effort for the NH coastline) has put out a bulletin asking for folks to help pick up these discs, as they are worried about them being a possible choking hazard for marine wildlife. The discs have been tested for bacteria and are safe to handle, but it is advised to wear disposable gloves as a precaution.
