About 100 volunteers helped pick up hundreds of pounds of trash and debris on the beach along the Courtney Campbell Causeway Saturday (Sept. 16).
Volunteers helped picked up about 200 garbage bags worth of trash during the the Keep Pinellas Beautifuland Ocean Conservancy’s 26th Annual International Coastal Cleanup, said Krystal Schmidt, volunteer specialist with the city.
"I think the strangest thing we found was a piece of plywood," Schmidt said.
