Lake Charles, La. — The City of Lake Charles and Keep Greater Lake Charles Beautiful –Team Green will once again join the nationwide Beach Sweep and Inland Waterway Cleanup on Saturday, September 16, 2017, as they do each year on the third Saturday of September. “Volunteers around the world come together to clean beaches, shorelines, and inland waterways and remove dangerous debris”, said a media release.

Last years event was pushed back to October in SWLA, due to inclement weather.

There will be a pre-event briefing at 7 a.m. for volunteers at the Civic Center, then trash will be collected beginning at 8 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. 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 in the Lake Charles Civic Center’s Lakeside Parking Lot, 900 Lakeshore Drive, all taking place between 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.

“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 Lake Charles Civic Center, I-10 beach, Prien Lake Park, North Ryan Street at River Road, and in the McNeese parking lot off of Common Street near the facilities building.
