For decades, citizens living near MacKerricher State Park found a solution for garbage disposal: they threw it off the cliff. All manner of garbage was pitched, including appliances and the occasional automobile. By 1967, the local government put a stop to this indiscriminate dumping and took measures over the next few years to clean it up.
Then mother nature stepped in, her pounding waves creating a beach not of sand, but of beach glass.
Tourists are “not allowed” to take the glass, although many do. Apparently, the journey down to the beach is a little treacherous, so wear good shoes.
