This is a wonderful gift. I do wish people would just take care of their own debris while visiting the ⛱ beach..

Awesome...thank you. You are appreciated...

That’s fantastic. Great for Gorda

Well done! Most excellent! Thanks for all you do!

I couldn’t agree more our visitors need to clean up their area before they pack up and leave. Y’all have a safe and prosperous New Year

AWESOME! Thank you Cinco Davant & Friends!!

Very nice, now if everyone just picks up their own trash, this will last longer

Well done!

I'd take that full time job

This is awesome. Thanks fellow Maniacs for yalls donations!! Where and who will be responsible for this equipment? Hope not the county.

Thank you so much for all you do👏Is there anyway this machine can filter out the tumbled sea glass to save for me?😁🐟🐬😆
