Cleanup collects 3 tons of trash

Sarasota, Florida - Sarasota County is known for its beautiful beaches, parks and natural areas, but keeping all those destinations looking their best requires a huge effort.

Keep Sarasota County Beautiful (KSCB) has finished gathering data from the Great American Cleanup held on April 27, and the program coordinator is reporting that more than 680 volunteers picked up 6,371 pounds of trash, recyclables and other refuse at locations across the county.

"The Great American Cleanup brought a variety of residents together -- from individual seniors to families with young children -- to clean our parks, neighborhoods and beaches," said Wendi Crisp, KSCB Program Coordinator in a release. "It was an incredible turnout and a testament to just how much the residents of Sarasota County love their community." 

All together, volunteers donated more than 1,500 hours to the cleanup effort.

The Great American Cleanup has made an impact on Sarasota County by creating a cleaner, safer and more beautiful environment for more than 20 years.
