Water Action Volunteers
River Clean Ups
Since 1997, over 11000 volunteers have cleaned up garbage along more than 500 miles of Wisconsin streams and rivers. They have collected more than 3000 bags and 130,000 pounds of trash during river clean ups. These efforts are truly making a difference!
There is always the option to schedule your local clean up in conjunction with the National Rivers Clean Up Week, but clean ups can usually be conducted during all but the coldest months of the year. WAV provides a printable information packet about planning and carrying out your own clean-up project and free garbage bags (on a first-come first serve basis) to those groups that register their clean ups with us
