Volunteers clear couches, old TVs, tires during Blue Hole falls cleanup Saturday

CARTER COUNTY, Tenn. (WJHL)- More than a dozen volunteers gathered at a popular hiking spot in Carter County Saturday morning to clean up.

Keep Carter County Beautiful said it received a request to clean up the Blue Hole waterfall area in Carter County, located on Holston Mountain. 

Volunteers found all kinds of trash and debris as they cleaned up on Saturday.

Beverlie Margle, who lives in Carter County and hikes around the falls, hoped that once they cleaned up the area, it would stay that way.

"I hope everybody is inspired to take care of the forest, it is all of ours, it's not mine, it's not yours, it belongs to all of us and we can't let one or two bad apples destroy it for the rest of us," Margle said.

With the help of around 25 volunteers that showed up Saturday morning, organizers said they were able finish cleaning up in a matter of hours.
