Deposits of Debris on US West Coast is 2 to 3 Times Usual Levels


Japan's debris team inspects Oregon coast NHK http://www3.nhk.or.jp/daily/english/20120805_91.html

[Excerpted]A Japanese survey team has inspected a beach in Oregon and collected debris from last year's tsunami in northeastern Japan.

Part of the debris that was washed away by the tsunami has reached the US West Coast. The disposal of this garbage has become a big issue....

...The amount of garbage that has drifted ashore has doubled or tripled since the start of this year. It's believed that much of the debris came from Japan...

Majia here: the article states that Japan plans on helping dispose of the debris.
