ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - It's cleanup day for some holiday decorations at Arlington National Cemetery.

A group that placed holiday wreaths on the gravestones at the cemetery will be collecting them Saturday.

The group Wreaths Across America decorated some 90,000 graves at the cemetery with wreaths in December. The group says last year 3,000 people participated in the cleanup effort.
