Apalachicola Riverkeeper, along with the Franklin County Departments of Parks & Recreation and Solid Waste & Recycling, is co-sponsoring the Ocean Conservancy’s 35th Annual International Coast Cleanup, the world’s largest volunteer effort to help protect our oceans, lakes and rivers. In Franklin County last year, 373 volunteers collected almost 7 tons of trash from the local beaches, bay, gulf, and river. Each year, volunteers not only remove trash from the environment but also record what they collect in order to develop ways to deter these trash problems in the future.
