Evansville participates in the Great American Clean-Up

Many people took part in the nationwide Great American Clean-Up program Saturday morning in Evansville. 

The event was organized by Keep Evansville Beautiful and encouraged people to pick up trash all around the city not just on Saturday, but all year round.  

Mayor Lloyd Winnecke helped pick up trash in the Eastland Mall area. The mall's management coordinated the clean-up of their property.  

Mike McGarrah with Keep Evansville Beautiful says organized clean-up efforts will continue on the 27th on Global Youth Service Day.
