||Thank you volunteers! Big Sweep 2012 removed over 3.5 tons of litter from local waterways.
A little elbow grease goes a long way to clean up local creeks and lakes. More than 300 people took part in our annual cleanup of creeks and lakes on September 29. The litter was mainly bottles, cans, and food wrappers. In addition to removing 369 bags of garbage and nine tires, Big Sweepers hauled in:
• 4 shopping carts,
• a sliding board and
• a vacuum cleaner!
