Shore Sweep: The Big Clean Up

By Staff
GAINESVILLE - The Lake Lanier Association is gearing up for Shore Sweep 2012, which will be held next Saturday from 8:00-1:00.

Hundreds of volunteers are need - and expected - for the 24th annual cleanup of Lake Lanier. In past years, more than 1,000 people have turned out for the event. The record haul: nine tons.

What Do I Need To Do?

As a Shore Sweep Volunteer the first thing you need is, you guessed it - trash bags! Volunteers may pick up trash bags to collect trash from the shoreline at the lake locations listed below. Trash may be taken to these locations, with the exception of Lake Lanier Islands, where volunteers may enter at no charge through the main gate to collect trash.
