Guam – Divers collected more than twenty bags of trash this morning in a clean up effort by the Guam Environmental Protection Agency, Micronesian Divers Association, Guam Coastal management Program, The University of Guam Marine Lab, UnderWater World and the iRecycle program near the Agat Cemetery.


Thirty divers collected aluminum cans, plastic bottles and other types of trash that had collected on the ocean floor just offshore from the Agat Cemetery.  The area was recently highlighted in a short video by underwater videographer Mike McCue.
