Keep it clean: Weekend tubers weigh in on river garbage increase

Posted: Saturday, July 5, 2014 11:34 pm

On Saturday, the Comal River was packed full of tubers who decided to spend some time having fun in the sun this Independence Day weekend — and many people felt like more could be done to decrease the amount of litter in the river.

According to a recent report released by the City of New Braunfels, the quantity of river trash left behind by tubers has significantly increased this past Memorial Day weekend when compared to the same weekends when the “can ban” was in effect during 2013 and 2012.

    242 pounds??!! I don't know how the outfitters sleep at night. Oh yeah I do; they have a big comfy pillow made of soiled money acquired through greed. Disgusting folks.

    Thank HZ for putting out the real story.

    My question is where are the outfitters now that the can ban was thrown out. When it was in effect they were crying and wanted to sit down and work out a compromise. They wanted to do their share to keep the river clean.

    Now that they got their way and their customers are trashing the river they don't have anything to say.
