A Tale of Traveling Trash: the Story of the Hooksett Disks
On March 6, 2011, over 4 million plastic disks were accidentally discharged from the wastewater treatment plant in Hooksett, NH. A major cleanup effort was organized, but we are still finding these disks on area beaches and getting reports of them from other locales.
