The League to Save Lake Tahoe used the all-electric, remote-controlled, beach-cleaning robot, or BEBOT, around the Tahoe Basin to clean 11 beaches in the Tahoe Basin between June and October collecting 6,315 pieces of litter. The cleanup included 2,085 pieces of plastic, 325 cigarette butts and 1,695 bits of organic waste (such as pistachio shells, cherry pits and orange peels) that can take years to biodegrade, according to a press release from the League to Save Lake Tahoe.
