The document addresses the following topics: (1) "Organization of the Texas Coastal Cleanup"; (2) "Cleanup Activities on September 20"; (3) "Results"; (4) "Sources of Debris"; (5) "Distribution of Debris"; (6) "Drums"; (7) "Entanglement"; (8) "Conclusions"; (9) "Recommendations" (for government and industry); and (10) "Proclamations and Recognition."
