On Saturday, April 7th, TSW staff members volunteered at the 8th Annual Sweep the Hooch Multi-site Cleanup. The event covered over 100 miles of the Chattahoochee River and tributaries with over 40 cleanup locations from the headwaters above Lake Lanier south to West Point Lake. TSW’s cleanup site was in Brookhaven at Murphey Candler Park (Nancy Creek is a tributary of the Chattahoochee River). Bags and bags of trash and recyclables were collected and it was a fun way to spend a Saturday with co-workers!
