Volunteers collected more than 600 pounds of debris during Palm Coast's "Keep Palm Coast Clean – Love Where You Live" event on July 30.
It was the third such cleanup hosted by the city's Public Works Department, and volunteers gathered at the Public Works building early in the morning to pick up trash bags, gloves and water before dispersing, according to a city government news release.
In addition to the estimated 600 pounds of litter that volunteers collected in garbage bags, they also removed a discarded basketball hoop, tires, sheets of plywood and other heavy items.
"We had more than 25 volunteers come together and help Keep Palm Coast Clean and help keep our city looking beautiful," Public Works Workforce Data Analyst Benny Cope said, according to the news release. "I’m very thankful for the community's involvement and look forward to planning the next event later this year."
