Volunteers chip in to clean lowcountry neighborhoods

Volunteers chip in to clean lowcountry neighborhoods


Just in time for Earth Day, a group of North Charleston volunteers hit the streets in an effort to clean up the city.

The team, many from the Cameron Terrace-Oak Brook Civic Club, cleared trash from areas surrounding the I-526 exit ramp onto N. Rhett Avenue.

Jenion Tyson, president of the neighborhood Homeowner's Association, said teams wanted to focus on the area as it serves as the entry point into their community.

"After they mowed the grass around I-526, you could really see all the trash," he said.

"We decided we wanted it to look nice."

Close to 50 neighborhood and school groups were also expected to join in Saturday, as part of Clean Cities Sweep, an award-winning partnership between Keep Charleston Beautiful, and Keep North Charleston Beautiful.
