Hats off to the Texas General Land Office and all the volunteers that picked up tons of trash on Texas beaches, what an outstanding job you did! Along with the typical paper trash, empty bottles and cans, cigarette butts and other common items, the volunteers always find some rather unusual items. I'm sure you've walked along the beach and saw something unusual and thought "what in the world is that doing here?" Here's a list of the strangest things found on Texas beaches during the fall cleanup.

A wool blanket

Gold club head

Makeup brush

Tricycle seat

Toilet seat

Toilet brush


Car bumper (huh?)

Patio furniture


Truck radiator

That was this year. Here are unusual items found in other beach cleanups. The backstories on these items would probably be very interesting.

Car key with remote  (I've been looking for that)   

Hard hat

Radio (was it tuned to KLUB Classic Rock 106.9?)

Car seat

HDMI cable

Rusty hammer ( I think I went to high school with him)


High pressure oxygen tank

Sheetrock (That was for my beach house)


Shotgun shells

Metal shelving

Silly string

Computer motherboard

Mouth guard

Synthetic marijuana

Crop dusting bag

Old life jackets


Ping pong ball

US Coast Guard buoy

Entertainment center

Pizza delivery sign


False eyelash (just one?)

Plastic bottle of urine (wait, what?!?)  

What was the most unusual item you've ever seen while walking along the beach?
