    RiverSweep

    Ohio’s Largest Done-in-a-day Clean Up

    Join us on Saturday, May 11, 2019, from 9 a.m. to 12 noon for Riversweep, Northeast Ohio’s clean-up of the Cuyahoga River Corridor! We clean up to bring awareness to areas that will one day become a future trail and/or park. In 2018, 700 volunteers removed over 32,265 tons of trash, including 273  tires and went through 40 gallons of paint to cover up graffiti!

     

    Over the course of 29 years 19,108 volunteers have helped us extract and recycle 24,317 illegally discarded tires and picked up for disposal 655 tons of trash. In 2017 alone, 750 volunteers removed over 39 tons of trash, including 319 tires. In 2015, we added a new graffiti clean-up component to RiverSweep to help beautify the area.

     

     

    Volunteer for RiverSweep

    RiverSweep draws from across the area, students, activists and members of the business community all work together to clean our shared backyard.

     

    There are 10 separate clean-up sites so you can choose the location that’s most convenient for you. The first 700 volunteers will receive a free t-shirt- all will get gloves and bags. Volunteer truck drivers will only pick up bags of trash in visible areas along their route. Trash bags left in piles along the main street in your clean up area is best, preferably in groups or on the corner of intersecting streets. 

     

    Volunteers must sign a waiver before they participate.  A waiver is available for download below, and additional waivers will be available at your clean site location.  Children under the age of 16 must have the waiver signed by an adult.
