This year’s Alabama’s Coastal Cleanup event is set for this weekend.
Volunteers will be combing Alabama’s beaches and waterways tomorrow morning removing as much trash as possible. Event organizers say over the 28 years of Coastal Cleanup, Alabama volunteers have managed to clear over 1.5 million pounds of trash from the state’s coast and rivers during the one-day effort.
Angela Underwood is the State Coordinator for Alabama Coastal Cleanup. She explains why the annual event is so important.
