Lynyrd Skymmr Breaks Record on Rivers

1,225 cubic yards.
That's how much garbage and debris the Lynyrd Skymmr cleaned out of our rivers and Lake Michigan in 2013 (a 23% increase over 2012 levels).  It's enough to fill 61 dumpsters this size:
If you're not familiar with the Lynyrd Skymmr, it's a boat that cleans up thousands of pounds of garbage, tree branches and logs each year, helping create a positive image and experience for tourists and residents who visit the many shops, restaurants, theaters, hotels and bars located on or near the water in downtown Milwaukee.
