Green & Clean volunteers take out the trash in Wausau

WAUSAU (WAOW) -

Community members hit the streets at the Green & Clean event in Wausau.

More than 500 people loaded up trash bags with as much litter as they could find. The founder of the Green & Clean event, Chuck Ghidorzi, said it's an environmentally-friendly tradition he hopes will continue for years to come.

"I think anything that can be a family event, and especially a family event that has a spirit about it in terms of how you can improve your community, I think just vibrates down through those kids," said Ghidorzi.

Green & Clean is in it's third year, and organizers said the event fills more than a thousand bags of trash a year.
