Volunteers collected 1,500 bags of trash and scrubbed graffiti off 20 buildings or monuments around town Saturday.
The effort was part of Clean and Green, a River City Co. program in which about 750 volunteers clean up trash and take part in projects like the planting of a community garden at the 21st Century Child Development and Learning Center. Volunteers worked at the City Center, Riverfront, Southside, M.L. King Boulevard-University of Tennessee at Chattanooga area, Northshore, Fort Wood, Glass Farms, Glenwood, Highland Park, Hill City, North Creek and Orchard Knob.
Volkswagen Chattanooga sponsored the program.
