The City of Lake Charles and Keep Greater Lake Charles Beautiful -Team Green will join the annual nationwide Beach Sweep and Inland Waterway Cleanup on Saturday, September 15, 2018, from 8 am to 12 pm, as they do each year on the third Saturday of September.  The event will also be in conjunction with the Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup.

There will be a pre-event briefing at 7 am for volunteers at the Civic Center, then trash will be collected beginning at 8 am to 10:30 am and recorded on data cards, with the remainder set to wrap-up with comments from Mayor Nic Hunter. There will also be an award presentation and refreshments served, between 11 am to 12 pm

“Team Green is asking for volunteer groups, service clubs, and families who will commit to helping cleanup one of our area’s beaches or shorelines, in order to keep it beautiful and environmentally safe,” said Mason Lindsay, Keep Greater Lake Charles Beautiful volunteer coordinator.

Trash receptacles will be located at the west side of the old Harrah's parking garage off Interstate 10 for a place to bring trash collected during the morning.
