There is now a specially designated and marked sorb disposal trash can at Peacock Springs State Park. The can was placed directly beside the head of the boardwalk at Peacock I and is marked on the lid in large block letters.

The can was placed by Kelly Jessop and the North Florida Springs Alliance (NFSA) in conjunction with Florida State Parks management. The reason for the can was that sorb was causing the bottoms of the trash bags to fail in the generic trash cans and park management had asked that no sorb be disposed of on site.

John Katerenchuk and I were out at Peacock Springs on Sunday morning. After the dive I dumped my spent sorb, as well as that from our Orange Grove dive the day before, where it belongs.

This is a model for other parks and dive locations. Implement it before used sorb becomes a problem.

Thanks NFSA!
