Volunteers clean up South Platte near Denver
April 26, 2010
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) – Volunteers in watercraft, on bicycles and on foot have cleaned up a section of the South Platte River in the Denver suburb of Englewood.
More than 200 people participated in the 4th annual South Platte River Clean Up on Sunday.
Some took to the water in kayaks and on rafts to pluck debris from the river and dump it in floating trash cans. Others walked or biked along the bank, cleaning up a parallel path.
Organizers say they’ve removed more than six tons of garbage over the years.
