The City of Wichita is hosting the annual Arkansas River Trash Roundup on Saturday.
This is the 16th year that volunteers will get together to clean up trash and debris from along the Arkansas River.
David Nelson, area chairman of Ducks Unlimited, one of the event’s sponsors, spoke about the trash roundup at this week's city council meeting.
“Last year, 1300 people collected nearly two-and-a-half tons of trash from our river," he said. "It’s kind of amazing to think that there's actually two-and-a-half tons of trash in our river.”
