Volunteers work to clean up Wabash River

By Joseph Slacian

“Every last tire. Every last ton.”

Michael Beauchamp led volunteers for Saturday’s Clean Out the Banks event in that chant before the clean out began.

“This is going to be a great day,” he said. “We’re going to make history today. This is the largest volunteer clean out in Indiana, and probably the largest clean out in the United States and North America.

“The word volunteer is the key here. It’s because of all of you and the hundreds and hundreds of people over the past decade that made this possible.”
