What weighs 20,000 pounds and takes nearly 4,000 people to move it? The Garbage on Jupiter Beach.
15 years ago a local resident Anita Lankler made a deal with the City of Jupiter. You let our dogs on the beach and we'll pick up the garbage. This little group grew into a membership of 4,000 plus and became the "Friends of Jupiter Beach."
Once a month hundreds of people, 6 to 86, from fifteen zip codes surrounding Palm Beach County, converge onto Jupiter Beach... to pick up the garbage.
