Litter prevention meeting held on Tybee Island

TYBEE ISLAND, GA (WTOC) -

Residents on Tybee Island are working together to try and keep their island litter free.

The "Fight Dirty" campaign is aimed at controlling and preventing the litter on Tybee's beaches. Members are trying to bring together those who live, work and visit the island in a variety of ways to help keep the beaches clean.

Something organizers say is working.

"Working together and figuring out how to educate and pick up and reduce the amount of trash on Tybee is something that a lot of people who live here care about, and a lot of visitors care about too,” said Tim Arnold, “Fight Dirty” campaign.

Organizers say the group will be taking ideas that many have pitched and will focus them down into obtainable goals to prevent trash on the beach for 2016.
