TYBEE ISLAND, Ga. (WTOC) – The organization named “Fight Dirty Tybee” and a local Tybee restaurant teamed up to purchase a machine that they hope will cut back on how much plastic gets sent to the landfill.
“I think it does feel good to know that your materials at least aren’t going to landfill or are becoming something that’ll fund future beach cleanups and maybe be around for a very long time,” Tim Arnold said.
Arnold is a Tybee Clean Beach volunteer. His goal is to educate the community about plastics and upcycling.
“When you start to try to take raw material and turn it into something else you realize that recycling is a really tough thing to do,” Arnold said.
