Clean Sweep collects 2.3 tons of trash locally
Results are in for the Sandusky River Clean Sweep that took place Aug. 18.
Andria Marquis, one of the coordinators, said 252 volunteers helped to clean more than 15 sites in or along the river.
From those sites were cleaned 43 tires and 2.3 tons of trash. In addition, 1,480 pounds of scrap metal were recycled.
"Not bad for only three hours of work," she wrote in a Facebook post. "Can you imagine if the cleanup was an all-day event how much we would find?"
