New Braunfels Residents Approve Tubing Can Ban

NEW BRAUNFELS RESIDENTS APPROVE TUBING CAN BAN By a wide margin, New Braunfels residents voted to uphold an ordinance passed by city council over the summer that will prohibit Comal and Guadalupe River tubers from using disposable containers within the city limits. Supporters of the beer-can ban, which takes effect January 1, hope it’ll limit pollution from visitors; layers of tossed aluminum cans have been found lining riverbottoms after peak tubing season weekends. A group of local business owners has already filed suit to block the ban, claiming it violates state law. [San Antonio Express-News; previously on Swamplot] Photo: Lelombrik

  • Good for New Braunfels residents. A treasure is no longer a treasure when it is trash.

  • “Supporters of the beer-can ban hope it’ll limit pollution from visitors”
    Or shortened: “Supporters of the beer-can ban hope it’ll limit visitors”

  • What a shame we all get punished by the acts of some irresponsible fools. More than likely teenagers that want to get rid of the evidence.

  • Good. Too many piggies littering a beautiful part of the state. This is why we can’t have nice things.
