Workers pick up trash ahead of oil's arrival

HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) – Hundreds of workers are cleaning up Harrison County beaches this morning.

Sand Beach Director Bobby Weaver said they're trying to remove as much debris as possible before any oil comes ashore. The idea is that oil covered trash is a preventable hazard.

They're removing everything from trash and driftwood to dead fish and seaweed. The workers were hired by United States Environmental Services.
