SEA BRIGHT - The annual New Jersey beach cleanup kicked off this weekend.

The goal of the event is to get New Jersey's battered beaches and shores ready for a crucial summer of recovery.

Many signs of Sandy were still present as crews cleaned up signs from destroyed businesses, amusement park debris and coal from a sunken barge.

Lindsay McNamara, who works for Clean Ocean Action, says 6,000 people registered to clean, and more than 1,000 additional volunteers showed up for a record turnout.
