The Mississippi Coastal Cleanup features thousands of volunteers who pick up tons of trash. During the 2016 cleanup, 2,469 volunteers picked up more than 14 tons of litter. Plastic bottles, straws, wrappers, and cigarette butts made up most of the garbage removed from Mississippi’s coastlines, waterways, and barrier islands.
