Spring Tide event helps clean up Murrells Inlet

Murrells Inlet, SC - MURRELLS INLET, SC (WMBF) - Murrells Inlet is a little bit cleaner after some spring cleaning. Murrells Inlet hosted its 19th annual Spring Tide Cleanup event on Sunday.

Volunteers picked up trash all over the inlet, covering it by land and by boat.

Whitney Hills, who works with Murrells Inlet 2020, says it's important to make sure the area always looks its best.

"It's very important to pick up the trash and make sure our town is beautiful for when the tourists come to visit and just make it a pretty place to live," she said.

Organizers estimate around 150 people were out helping pick up trash all around the Inlet.
