Great Rivers Greenway Group cleans up along Mississippi, Missouri Rivers

Posted: Updated:
ST. LOUIS (KMOV) -- Volunteers worked Saturday to clean up trash along the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers.

The Great Rivers Greenway Group sponsored the operations. Volunteers cleaned trash and debris along the Mississippi River Trail, which runs from downtown St. Louis to the old Chain of Rocks Bridge.

"When we're allowing trash into waterways, we're not just polluting our communities, it gets carried downstream," said Mary Lou Green, a volunteer. "It's about stormwater management and protecting waterways."

In the previous six years, volunteers have removed more than 61 tons of trash and scrap along with more than 5,000 tires.
