The Maui Wedding Association rallied up volunteers to clean up part of the South Maui coastline on Saturday.

Volunteers gathered 300 pounds of cigarette butts, beer cans and bottles, broken slippers, plastic bottles, and fireworks debris from Keawakapu Beach.

Organizers suspected that recent high winds pulled the debris from nearby foliage.

Volunteers also picked up multiple bags of trash from parking lots in the area.

The cleanup was organized in partnership with local nonprofit Mālama Maui Nui, which aims to engage the community in litter prevention, recycling, and beautification efforts across the county.
