Volunteers from nonprofit Current Problems are spending hours removing hundreds of pounds of trash from a sinkhole in Southwest Alachua County, Fla.
The group’s mission is to preserve and protect North Central Florida's water resources. Nine volunteers recently worked through the summer heat and rain, removing an estimated 1,500 to 2,000 pounds of trash. The nonprofit projects that volunteers will need to return to the site two or three more times to get rid of the rest of the waste, which has been covered by soil after decades of just sitting.
