Clean Up Sites for RiverSweep 2023

The impact of RiverSweep on the community is undeniable. Within the Cuyahoga River watershed, new parks and trails have emerged in areas formerly targeted for illegal dumping. Each year, we choose locations to clean based on need. We prioritize locations close to the Cuyahoga River and to its tributaries to help reduce the amount of trash that makes it into our fresh water.

Register to Volunteer at RiverSweep

Review the locations below and register at one location if you plan to join us at 9 am on May 6. Volunteer spots are limited. When you arrive at your chosen cleanup site, the site leader will greet you with an event t-shirt and provide cleaning supplies and further instructions. Please only register at one location.  

Registered volunteers will receive an email invitation to a Thank You Party after the cleanup event. Don't forget to RSVP to the Thank You Party!
