Do you find a lot of garbage other than plastic?  If so, what are the most unusual objects?

This refrigerator we found floating on Halloween day was metal, though it contained some plastics.

We do find garbage other than plastic, such as glass bottles with caps on them.  Some of the more unusual items have been tires, glass fishing floats, and refrigerators.

Made of green glass, this fishing buoy was brought aboard when we were in an area of high plastic concentrations.
