Beach clean-up continues

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Work crews are wrapping up the task of picking litter off Mississippi beaches.

BP hired private contractor "U.S. Environmental Services" to remove all trash, dead fish and other debris.

Crews finished up the cleaning east of the Biloxi small craft harbor Wednesday.

Sand Beach Director Bobby Weaver said Thursday less trash on the beach will make it easier to scoop up any contaminated sand if the beach is hit by the oil spill.
