MANDEVILLE, Manchester — International Coastal Cleanup Day is recognised on the third Saturday in September each year.

It is described as one of the largest one-day voluntary events worldwide. Earlier this month, several groups in central Jamaica took part in the activity, which includes picking up trash as well as recording data on what is found.

Here are photo highlights from coastal cleanups in Alligator Pond in Manchester and Black River in St Elizabeth provided by the Manchester Municipal Corporation, St Elizabeth Youth Innovation Centre, and deCarteret College Environmental Club.
