PASS CHRISTIAN, MS (WLOX) - A washing machine washed up on Pass Christian beach during this morning's Mississippi Coastal Cleanup. Volunteer Paula Hughes submitted a photo of the battered Bosch appliance to WLOX, mentioning the washing machine is among the many interesting things found at the cleanup event.
Around 3,000 people volunteered for this year's Coastal Cleanup.
Fifteen tons of trash were picked up, which is one ton more than what was collected last year.
People showed up to 40 sites across the coast to do their part in keeping the coastline clean.
Environmental agencies who partnered for the event say having a lot of volunteers really helps to get the job done.
