ALBANY, GA (WALB) - More than 80 volunteers spent their morning cleaning up along the Flint.

It was all part of Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful's Flint river clean up.

Members of the community helped pick up trash along the river and the green trail.

The cleanup is for Rivers Alive, a state initiative that encourages cleanup along the more than 70-thousand miles of georgia waterways.

"We found a lot of paper, bottles, cans, junk parts, we found a lot of that out here and we pulled it to the side," Barbara Dawson, Volunteer.

"This morning we're out here just to give back to our community we want to clean up what other people mess up, and teaching the young people the importance of cleaning up so they won't mess up later on in life," said Brenda Blackshear, Volunteer.

This was the sixth year Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful took part in the cleanup.
