On South Padre Island had a demonstration for the Land Commissioner and local officials of a state of the art beach cleaner.
In order to clean a beach you can sift the sand or you can rake it but this machine, known as the Beach Tech, does both. It can clean just above the surface or go down into the sand up to 10 inches. The machine works this way, it throws the sand onto a conveyer belt then shakes the sand out to keep it on the beach and then throws the trash onto a special container located in the back of the machine.
