Volunteers fill trash bags, help clean up Boone Lake during annual event

WASHINGTON COUNTY, TN (WJHL)- People from all across the Tri-Cities pitched in to help spruce up Boone Lake on Saturday.

Volunteers dispersed throughout Washington and Sullivan counties to clean up all areas of the lake.

While volunteers left with empty trash bags, they had no problem filling them up with miscellaneous items found at the lakes bottom.

“Typical clean up there will probably be 50 to 60 tires sitting outside that, so that, propane tanks, batteries, lawn chairs, anything you can think of,” Josh Cole said.

Saturday marked the event’s 17th year.
