Total pieces of trash pledged:

River Cleanup Pledge

That piece of trash that you see on the sidewalk is likely to end up in your local stream or river. Every year, National River Cleanup® volunteers pull tons of trash out of our rivers. Let’s stop some of that trash from getting in the river in the first place.
  • I pledge to pick up 30 pieces of trash in 30 days

Virtual Landfill

Clean up our rivers and help build our virtual landfill! After you take the pledge, take a photo of your trash, and post on Twitter, Instagram or Vine using the hashtag #rivercleanup. Whether you’re out on the water or in your neighborhood picking up litter, show us how well you clean up.
