The Alliance for the Great Lakes is holding its largest single-day beach cleanup on September 21.

The organization said that about 15,000 people volunteer during the annual event at sites all over the Great Lakes and remove tens of thousands of pounds of litter from beaches during the cleanup.

In 2018, the Adopt-a-Beach volunteers cleaned up over 36,000 pounds of beach litter with over 89% of the litter being plastic.
