MONETA, Va. (WDBJ) – Volunteers gathered Saturday at Crazy Horse Marina at Smith Mountain Lake for a cleanup day.

The group Take Pride in Smith Mountain Lake is leading a month-long cleanup initiative. Saturday, May 6 was the first day of the project.

Volunteers received free work gloves and large heavy-duty trash bags.

Two of the volunteers say they are hoping to give back and keep the community clean.

“We got a whole bag of stuff that people just threw away,” said Linda & Rick Muth. “From cigarettes to Styrofoam to glass bottles to cans. And I don’t know why people can’t find trash cans to put stuff in. Yeah, keep it out of the lake and keep it beautiful.”

Volunteers are still needed for the next cleanup days May 13 and 20.
