Volunteers spent the day Saturday picking up litter and debris along the Chesapeake Bay's shorelines.
Officials with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation say more than 6,000 volunteers participated this weekend in its 25th Annual Clean the Bay Day in Virginia.
The foundation says the volunteers worked on foot and by boat Saturday to remove approximately 125,000 pounds of litter and debris along 500 miles of shoreline.
The most common cast-offs were plastic bottles and bags and cigarette butts, but volunteers also collected appliances, tires and auto parts.
Some of the unusual discoveries included an antique kitchen sink, a recliner and the door to a safe.
Overall, 20 cities and counties throughout the state were represented at the event. All of Virginia's 20 state parks within the Chesapeake Bay watershed offered cleanup sites.
The bay is amid a massive federally directed clean-up.
