BAYOU MANCHAC- Work crews used heavy equipment to lift trash out of Bayou Manchac.
Five dump truck loads of debris were taken from an near the Highway 73 bridge by midday.
Ascension Parish officials say Bayou Manchac is listed as a scenic waterway. That means things like trees and limbs cannot be removed without permission.
The trees can cause trash to clog a large section of water.
Groups like The Bayou Manchac Group are helping.
Volunteer teams will be organized this weekend to help pick up.
