94 cigarette butts
79 aluminium cans
74 plastic bags
55 food wrappers
40 plastic bottles
25 paper bags
23 plastic forks/knives/spoons
21 metal bottle caps

15 plastic lids
9 plastic cups/plates

This substantial amount of waste was all either in the water or in the vicinity of the water, but has now been removed and properly disposed of to prevent it from further damaging our environment.
