Good, I've seen photos and it's not pretty and does a lot of damage to wildlife.

Yes, the photos of the bird skeletons filled with plastic and other assorted debris are horrible.

I can see someone putting the kibosh on this for whatever reason. One issue would be - where would they take the recovered plastic for recycling?
I wonder when the lies will stop and truth begin, even as grim as the truth may be. And then I remember that for 70 years, the reign of terror in Russia called itself "the people's government." We have so far to fall, yet we are falling fast and Hell yawns to receive us.

I believe the concept can be advanced to accommodate floating dumpsters....like the shuttle hooking up with the space station.  Fill it up and move em' on out!
