Twenty-seven March “Marsh Madness” Cleanups Remove 9.18 tons of Trash

BRUNSWICK, GA (April 7, 2021) -- Keep Golden Isles Beautiful’s (KGIB) annual March “Marsh Madness” month long cleanup effort was a huge success again this year, with 339 volunteers working a combined 536 hours in 27 cleanups to remove 9.18 TONS of trash/litter from salt marshes and border areas, including the removal of 118 tires.


Sponsored by Georgia-Pacific Brunswick Cellulose Mill, Marsh Madness is part of Keep America Beautiful’s “Great American Cleanup” that sees volunteers from across the country working towards clean, green and beautiful communities.


Marsh Madness would not be possible without the hard work of participating volunteers, community partners, and Glynn County public works, City of Brunswick public works and GA Department of Transportation assistance.
