Ascension Parish, La (NBC33) — Organizers of a big cleanup effort of Bayou Manchac say nearly 40 tons of trash was picked up.
The group worked with parish crews and volunteers to help clean up the place.
We're told more than 30 volunteers helped in the two day cleanup. The volunteers cleaned three miles from the bayou from Airline Highway into Ascension Parish.
The work is far from over; organizers say there's more trash along the border between East Baton Rouge and Iberville Parishes.
