The beach sweep, an annual fall event of the Rotary Club of Evanston Lighthouse, collected about 66 pounds of glass and plastic bottles, food wrappers, Styrofoam cups, cigarette butts and such at Lighthouse Beach Saturday.

Saturday’s volunteer event was part of the September Adopt-a-Beach cleanup, organized by the Alliance for the Great Lakes, and included shorelines in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
