**Other Trash refers to items that are collected by volunteers using the Clean Swell mobile app that do not fall in a specific category. These other items range in material type and size. Examples include indiscernible plastic pieces, clothing and metal pieces. Notably for 2020, it is likely that Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) items were logged in this category before a specific category was created for it on Clean Swell.
