Take part in annual beach, river sweep cleanup

The 24th Annual Beach Sweep/River Sweep is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 15 from 9 a.m. until noon. Last year, more than 3,000 volunteers removed 20 tons of litter, South Carolina’s largest one-day cleanup of beaches, marshes and waterways. The S.C. Department of Natural Resources is once again partnering with the S.C. Sea Grant Consortium to organize the statewide event. Anyone can participate — individuals, families, schools, youth groups, civic and conservation clubs and businesses. Volunteers either organize their own cleanups or they may sign up to assist at the cleanup locations listed at the Beach Sweep/River Sweep website at www.scseagrant.org/content/?cid=49.
