Plant Scherer Employees Clean up Juliette | Families
Georgia Power is doing its part to clean up the environment.
Georgia Power employees from Plant Scherer spent the morning cleaning parts of Juliette in and around the plant.
It's part of the company's Renew Our Rivers Initiative.
Volunteers say they recover everything from tires to cups to plastics.
Since the program's inception they say 12-million pounds of debris have been pulled from the waterways in Georgia, Alabama, Florida and Mississippi.
Officials say the clean up is especially important because several spots around the plant are used for recreational purposes.
The initiative is carried out annually.
More than 100 employees volunteered for the clean-up.
