These TikTok Videos Show All Kinds Of Nasty Garbage Being Pulled From Vancouver Waters

If you've ever wondered how dirty our oceans can get, well look no further than the insane amount of garbage collected in these TikTok videos.

Over the past weekend, Henry Wang posted a pair of videos after doing a dive at the Shipyards at Lonsdale Quay in North Vancouver.

In the first video, Wang sets the scene giving a shoutout to his fellow divers who took to the waters with him to pick out any trash that may be hiding underneath.

Then after their hunt, Wang posted a second video confirming that the group had collected 1,362 pounds of trash. Wang showed off about 34 chairs, three shopping cards, 10 tires and a crab trap.

While seeing all this garbage may not be good news to some, Wang referred to being surrounded by the results of the successful mission as his "happy place."

However, this isn't the first time Wang has gone diving for trash. His TikTok account features several videos of himself and the group Divers for Cleaner Lakes and Oceans, who perform cleanup dives like this one on a regular basis.
