After all these years, I couldn't believe I actually saw one of these plastic discs.

Some of you may remember several years ago, countless plastic discs washed up along Hampton Beach (as well as other beaches in Massachusetts). Well, on my walk a few days ago, I came across a lone disc as Brandy the Morning Waking Pooch and I strolled along the sidewalk of North Beach in Hampton.

It was back in March of 2011 thousands upon thousands of discs, used at a Hooksett sewage treatment plant began washing up on the beaches of Massachusetts and New Hampshire. The discs, which are used to collect bacteria washed out of the Hooksett sewage treatment plant due to an overflow from a rain storm.
