REDDING, Calif. - The Redding Police Department cleaned up more than a ton of trash from a homeless camp along the Sacramento River.
The department says there were 3,400 pounds of trash found around Parkview and Cypress Bridge.
The Department of Fish and Wildlife said the areas of trash are "seriously polluting the waterway."
Police say that was the reason they went forward with the cleanup, despite a temporary suspension of illegal camping enforcement.
