Every year organizers hope the annual cleanup of Murrells Inlet will get a little bit smaller.
In terms of the amount of trash picked up, of course.
At last year's annual Spring Tide cleanup around five tons of trash were picked up, said Murrells Inlet 2020 volunteer David Taylor.
A few years before about nine tons were picked up, he said.
"A little bit less, that's good," Taylor said. "That's the goal."
The cleanup started as an effort to clean up the remaining debris from Hurricane Hugo, said Sue Sledz the director of Murrells Inlet 2020.
"And it's been going ever since," Sledz said.
Sledz, who recently became the director of Murrells Inlet 2020, said the cleanup helps support some of the main goals of the organization.
"It was founded as a community revitalization organization and that mission remains constant today," Sledz said. "Our focus is community revitalization and preservation through environmental efforts" like Spring Tide.
Cleanup volunteers can check in at the Hot Fish Club on U.S. 17 Business around 10 a.m. on Sunday to receive street assignments.
