TAMPA, Fla. — Fourth of July is all about celebrating America's independence with fireworks. And while lighting up sparklers with your family and friends can be fun, and a great photo opportunity, there comes a time to clean up the trash after the celebration.
Registration for the volunteer opportunity begins at 7:30 a.m. and cleanup begins from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.
You can register at the following locations:
- Cypress Point Park, 5620 West Cypress Street
- Picnic Island Park, 7409 Picnic Island Boulevard
- Courtney Campbell Causeway South Trail, South Access trail
Volunteers are encouraged to bring sunscreen, hat or sunglasses, protective footwear and a reusable water bottle. Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful will provide the garbage bags, gloves, water, and a promotional item (while supplies last).
Other beach cleanup efforts occurring Friday morning are at Treasure Island and Clearwater Beaches in Pinellas County and Coquina Beach in Manatee County.
