Volunteers needed to clean SC waterways
CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Volunteers are needed at nearly 100 locations across South Carolina for the 34th annual beach and river sweep on Saturday.
Each year thousands of people volunteer for the one-day litter cleanup of the state’s beaches, marshes and waterways.
The cleanup effort is a partnership between the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources and the S.C. Sea Grant Consortium.
Last year, 16.5 tons of debris was cleared from waterways, officials said.
Saturday’s cleanup effort is scheduled from 9 a.m. - noon.
