Volunteers came out to Volusia County to help clean its beaches after all the July 4th festivities.

The county coordinated clean-ups from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. Tuesday morning at the following three sites: 

  • Tom Renick Park, 1565 Ocean Shore Blvd., Ormond Beach
  • Sun Splash Park, 611 S. Atlantic Ave., Daytona Beach

Every year, officials say the beaches are littered with thousands of pounds of fireworks, food, plates, and other litter.
