BRISTOL, Va. - Volunteers were out in full force to make the Bristol area a cleaner place Saturday.
We tagged along with a group picking up trash in the annual Keep Bristol Beautiful clean up event.
Nearly 100 volunteers were filling garbage bags with trash.
People were also able to drop off old electronics, things like computers, TV's, and vacuums to be recycled for free.
"There are materials in electronics that really shouldn't be in landfills, they shouldn't get into the ground. They're hazardous and a lot of materials in these things can be recycled and we want to recycle as much as possible," said Kathy Lowdermilk Director of Keep Bristol Beautiful.
Organizers tell us there will be another clean up in the fall on November 16th.
