Tens of thousands of pounds of trash — possibly more than 100,000 pounds — will be removed from Lake Lanier next month during the Lake Lanier Association’s annual Shore Sweep. And on Tuesday, the Lake Lanier Olympic Park will get a preview of the September sweep with a hefty, all-day cleanup of ruined dock equipment that has piled up near the park’s tower and boathouse.
