In a collaboration led by Charles River Watershed Association, volunteers from over 20 towns will work together to remove litter and debris and beautify the Charles River and its surrounding parklands in one of the nation’s largest one-day river cleanup events! Volunteers will remove trash from sites throughout the Charles River watershed from Milford to Boston.

 


Since 2000, the Charles River Watershed Association has coordinated the Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup each April with a collaborative of other non-profit organizations. Volunteers participate as part of more than 100 different neighborhood, school, religious, and corporate teams, as well as individually. Our volunteers remove trash and debris including television sets, bicycles, styrofoam cups, and plastic bags located in the river and on its banks at 100 sites along the 80-mile river. At last year’s event, we estimate that we removed 50 tons of litter, making the Charles River cleaner, healthier, and more beautiful! The Charles River Cleanup is organized by a collaborative of groups interested in keeping the river and our communities clean and healthy, including Charles River Watershed Association, Charles River Conservancy, The Esplanade Association, Emerald Necklace Conservancy, Green Decade Newton, Senator Brownsberger’s Office, Waltham Land Trust and MA Department of Conservation and Recreation. 

The 15th Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup is a part of the American Rivers National River Cleanup.
