Oil spill help?

Our marina is full of big stinky chunks (yes chunks) of oil from the oil spill and I'm tired of waiting for the grown ups to do anything.

I'm disgusted with our overall system that demands we who live and breathe and run and surf and swim and kayak here not worry our pretty little heads about this catastrophe- just let the authorities take care of things. As though it were even feasible for them to do so. I'm even more disgusted that I, like everyone else, have gone along with it, because I'm afraid of making things worse. It feels like some huge scale Milgrim experiment.
I would like to go down with my shovel and some hefty bags and start getting rid of some of this oil. Has anyone here dealt with oil spills before? What's the least annoying way of doing this? Will Hefty bags work? Would garbage pails be better?
