BC Ferries workers who volunteered to help clean up B.C. beaches this summer found some strange items.

Among the approximate 1,725 kg of trash they collected were a baby stroller, car parts and a can of ham.

About 330 employees took part in the effort to clean up about 50 kilometres of shoreline.
