CCSO, Community Help Keep Collier Beautiful

Deputies traded their cruisers for canoes and kayaks for a day to help spruce up Green Canal in Golden Gate as part of the Keep Collier Beautiful - Bay Days Cleanup in April.

The Golden Gate Task Force targeted Green Canal and the area between Sunshine Boulevard to 18th Avenue Southwest for cleanup.

Golden Gate District COPS deputies, along with the Golden Gate Civic Association, Collier County Road and Bridge Department, Waste Management, Collier County Code and Utility Enforcement, Mer Soleil Apartments maintenance staff, and citizen volunteers, teamed up to collect 1,980 pounds of debris and trash.

Great job keeping Collier County a beautiful place to live!
